A leopard can never change it`s spots, and a tiger, never it`s stripes.
We`re not scared of the actual thing, but more so, whether it bites.
A plant can not live without it`s own blood, and neither can a mammal.
So why do you judge us, and name us things like ferral.

A bird cannot help the fact, that its born to fly.
So we take away thier gift, with a thought of "why can`t i"
A selfish person taught me, to let go and to live.
Because your flight can easily be taken, by a word, a sight, a scent.

To scream wouldn`t be close to loud, a whisper isn`t silent.
A child`s laughter, can not compare, to the sun whilst it shines.
And a cry of pain, will not express the pain, or joys we feel.
Life is a challenge, which we seemingly pass, and things will soon provail.

A leopard can never change it`s spots, and a tiger, never it`s stripes.
We`re not scared of the actual thing, but more so, whether it bites.
We are not scared of the actual facts, but the what if`s.
So blocking them with silent tears, is a human gift.
