Eyes II

LionThere is something as seen in the eyes

Of king

A king that makes one bow before him

And pales against the rage in a human soul

This beast, this king, has more dignity

Than the man who would exterminate him.

More peace than we

who would be superior.

This poem is a follow up to poem I wrote in high school.  Eyes was written while I should have been listening to the teacher. Ironic since I am not the teacher. Please let me know what you think of this poem and its predecessor.
