Unshielded

Ever shielded around
Comforted no more
Revealed to see
What brings me so sore

While peace I cry
The world brings none
The ground so red
Drying out in the sun

As short as life is
The quiet and subtle
My fists against walls
So full of rebuttal

Pity the shortness
The blank stony stare
For hands against walls
Does little for care

Grass stains on the knee
Tear stains on the heart
Does little to change
The scars from the start

All knows nothing
Everyone feels the pain
For life is nothing
If left out in the rain

You have your friends
You live your life
But it all comes down
To one never ending strife

Pound your fist against the wall
Cry tears that you never felt
It all leads to the start
Just pretend you never dwelt
