Body of Defence

Body of Defence

 

Why is it that those the closest,

Are the ones who hurt us the most,

Fall short of the support I showed them,

Make me feel invisible, empty like a ghost

 

Why is it that my small family,

Keep me tethered to my past,

All those days of regret and pain,

Haunting memories I wish did not last

 

Why is it the friends I choose,

Seem to drift away with the years,

Are my flaws and fears too exposing,

Can’t they see my woeful tears

 

So to keep myself from disappointment,

Whilst my expectations begin to thin,

I need to learn to put my own health first,

And grow my shield of thicker skin
