The Lioness of Judah ~ (For Sandra)


“I thought you were Surinamese”

Somebody commented

Upon seeing the tattoo

Of a lion on her shoulder

“That’s the Lion of Judah

And I am what I am” she responded

“But I also expect to see a Suri tattoo

Since you are of mixed blood”

The commenter insisted

“I don’t do expectations” she firmly declared

That’s exactly how I envision her

A lioness, strong and independent

Watching her cubs, standing her ground
