Into Limpid Pools of Tranquility

“The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom.” 

― Osho, Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously

Staring into limpid pools of tranquility 
mesmerizing amber eyes flecked 
with golden specks reflecting 
relentless intrepid heat 
of an inner fire burning

For courageous lions will seldom acquiesce
nay, they will always resist
the expectation to conform
and follow the ignoble herd
