The Serpent


I now see your intention is not to hurt me.

It is to be the serpent you were created to be.

I am to respect the space that you roam.

To humbly appreciate the place you call home.

Please receive the gratitude I extend,

For allowing me to admire and to commend.

I bow to your presence, am no longer afraid.

Between fear and the serpent, amends have been made.
