Be sure to head on over to read other great poetry posts.
Today I *think* I'm being a little bit untraditional in my Poetry Friday post...I hope it's not against the rules. Forgive me if it is! In case you missed it, on Tuesday, I blogged about Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown again. I love this book and I'm so excited to be able to celebrate it. Make sure you check out my review and then also the prize pack giveaway that's open until Monday. While we've been roaring along with Mr. Tiger as we read the book, we've also been singing along with Katy Perry's new song, Roar. It seems timely that both are released around the same time because the messages in each definitely match. Mr. Tiger is tired of his proper life and breaks the mold in order to be true to himself. Katy expresses the same feeling of being held down or held back and finally speaking up for yourself in her song Roar. The lyrics make this a very inspirational song so I thought I would share it here as a poem. Enjoy!
