    Do not mistake my size for weakness.
    I am as the ancient trees.
    The storm bends my branches
    And scatters my leaves like tears,
    But I will never break.
    Do not think because my voice is soft
    It has nothing to say.
    I am as the mountain
    That has stood since time began.
    Hidden within me are many secrets
    Revealed only to those who dare
    To plumb my innermost depths.
    Do not mock the openness of my heart.
    Though I give freely of myself,
    I am the she-wolf in her lair
    And the blood of ten thousand mothers
    Boils in my veins.
    Do not think because you do not see me
    I am not worthy of notice.
    I am the tiger waiting by the jungle path.
    Ignore me at your peril,
    For I will spring on you unaware
    And cut your world asunder.

    Very well done! The following lines really touched me deep inside:

    Do not mock the openness of my heart.
    Though I give freely of myself,
    I am the she-wolf in her lair
    And the blood of ten thousand mothers
    Boils in my veins.
    Do not think because you do not see me
    I am not worthy of notice.
