A Cowardly Lion’s Soliloquy

The_Wizard_of_Oz_Bert_Lahr_1939

 

The world is a beautiful place…when you have courage. When you don’t…not so much.

 

I would know. I balled like a baby when Dorothy smacked me right in the kisser. Imagine! A King of the Jungle sopping the ground with his own sobs. Those were days when I saw no beauty anywhere. I jumped out of my own skin at the sight of my own shadow!

 

Oh, what a burden fear is!

 

And did fear weigh me down, until I made a choice to be brave!

 

 

 

 

Imagine how beautiful the world is then!

 

“courage is

it’s own reward”
