Panther

Panther

Red eyes glow as you walk through the forest
You search in the darkness
Looking for an innocent creature
Claws sharpened as you wait
You know what they can do
You know just where to strike
The creature doesn't suspect
It is just living its day
You wait
You strike
The battle lasts a mere moment
The creature is now among the dead
Creatures you have killed during your life
You stand tall
Full of your latest conquest
And after all is said and done
You will live to fight another day
But only when your eyes glow red
Until then sleep in the forest you control
And the land will be at peace
