Eye of a Tiger

 

Process Behind this Piece

A two significant songs over this year for me were:

  • Roar” by Katy Perry
  • You are My Champion” by Dante Bowe.

Throughout this year these songs have become a real encouragement to me. As a result I felt inspired to paint the eye of a tiger as a memory of this season. Both songs compliment the other, as they refer to the power of ones voice and “roar”.  Personally I have a passion to see people’s voices arise as this is an area that has been a struggle for me in the past. I am passionate to restore people’s voices to them and remind them of who they truly are. The eye is the window to our heart and therefore a reflection of our deepest desires and beliefs.

 

My Poem About Eye of Tiger

Focused and strong, fierce yet calm.
Centred and whole, courageous and bold.
Striped yet simple, quick yet slow.
Protective and brave, even found in the snow.

Piercing eyes, reflecting their heart.
Worlds within those, that display who they are.
Champions at birth, with a roar to unleash.
Words of authority, words that set free.

The eye of the tiger lives inside of you.
Hope is the anthem, a key of breakthrough.
Songs that shake ground, a sound that unlocks,
Places forgotten, removing the blocks.

Unleash your roar, unveil your sound.
You were born, to break open the ground.
A warrior of war, a child of deep strength.

A tiger of courage, that goes to any length.

By His stripes you are healed, forgiven and whole.
Redemption is the answer, freedom is the call.
Eyes are the window into ones soul.
Purity and praise are what bring down the walls.

 

Song lyrics

 

ROAR

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agreed politely
I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

You held me down, but I got up (hey!)
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ’cause I had enough
I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
‘Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar!

Now I’m floating like a butterfly

Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero

You held me down, but I got up (hey!)
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
‘Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar!

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
‘Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar!

Roar, roar, roar, roar, roar!

 

YOU ARE MY CHAMPION

You lead us to victory every time 
Is just what You do 
Is just who You are 

You’re my champion 
Giants fall when You stand 
Undefeated Every battle You’ve won 
I Am who You say I am 
You’ve crowned me with confidence 
I’m seated in the heavenly places 
Undefeated with the one who has conquered it all.

I’ve tried so hard to see it 
Took me so long to believe it 
That You choose someone like me 
To carry Your victory 
Perfection could never earn it 
You give what we don’t deserve 
And You take the broken things 
And raise them to glory.

You’re my champion 
Giants fall when You stand 
Undefeated Every battle You’ve won 
I Am who You say I am 
You’ve crowned me with confidence 
I’m seated in the heavenly places 
Undefeated with the one who has conquered it all.

Now I can finally see it 
You’re teaching me how to receive it 
So let all the striving cease 
This is my victory 
Now I can finally see it 
You’re teaching me how to receive it 
So let all the striving cease 
This is my victory.

You’re my champion 
Giants fall when You stand 
Undefeated Every battle You’ve won 
I Am who You say I am 
You’ve crowned me with confidence 
I’m seated in the heavenly places 
Undefeated with the one who has conquered it all  .

When I lift my voice and shout 
Every wall comes crashing down 
I have the authority 
Jesus has given me.

When I open up my mouth 
Miracles start breaking out 
I have the authority 
Jesus has given me.

You’re my champion 
Giants fall when You stand 
Undefeated Every battle You’ve won 
I Am who You say I am 
You’ve crowned me with confidence 
I’m seated in the heavenly places 
Undefeated with the one who has conquered it all.

When I lift my voice and shout 
Every wall comes crashing down 
I have the authority 
Jesus has given me.

When I open up my mouth 
Miracles start breaking out 
I have the authority 
Jesus has given me
