The Lion as King by laureenr

Lions captured at the Lion and Rhino Reserve in Gauteng.

This picture conjures so much emotion in me.
It reminds me of so many relationships I have seen
where the female in subservient to the degree
of being frightened and almost cowering through life.
While the male stands tall and proud and one never knows what went on behind closed doors to bring about what is seen.

May this be a reminder to us all to stand tall and proud as females no matter what.

  • Thanks so much Valerie. The lions just posed lol. You are right it is so true for so many of us and perhaps they are just reflecting us.
