The Shield

Show perfection in form,
It’s just a uniform,
No flaws when you’re pretending,
behind the mask
pride and fear swallowed back,
none can hurt you now,
from the shield in place,
of pain and anger,
nothing hurts worse,
than memories and thoughts
from behind the shield,
of “joy” and love,
secrets still lurk
in darkness behind lies,
and hazed isolation.
