I am a Tiger ~ Nokubongwa Zwane

I am a Tiger
On a summer’s day
In a hot, dry jungle
January;
I am hungry,
Hungry for victory and power
I am a Tiger
I am a beast.

I have hunted
I have fought,
I am never defeated.
I have no need of weapons
Because I am my own sword
I have my strength and my pride
I am shielded by my stripes and my claws
I am a Tiger
