Lambs with Manes of Lions
One of our amazing writers Laura has just released an incredible book of poems titled Lambs with Manes of Lions. Her poems look at the experiences of women through the transition from adolescence to adulthood, exploring themes such as love, violence, loss, laughter and determination.
The book is divided into five themes, spread across seven chapters, where each chapter can stand alone as a pillar of femininity, and shows how women can combat adversities through sheer determination, perseverance and empowerment. Lambs with Manes of Lions is a journey through the trials and tribulations found in one of the most daunting of life’s experiences: adulthood and identity.

Know Your Place – 2 in 1 Poem
Starlight in the desert plain
Sailing under a moonlit sky
Blue waters on a sunny day
Light speckling over water
Falls with rain onto the ground
Work of the bee and the butterfly
By the hours of the sweet sun
Day after day, the fruits of life
Cycles and routines, the creatures follow
The leader is not a human one
For all creatures are equally born
Free and happy, living in peace
By piece, and evolution, the food web goes
Out-wards and onwards, throughout time
And space becomes an issue, so take care
Full of houses and a lack of life
Lines drawn, extinct species and destroyed land
Fills the world with fear and dread
Full of worry of what comes next
Day delivers a renewal of hope
Less waste and abuse on our poor earthly host!
