THE SHIELD

THE SHIELD

We sometimes hide behind a shield

so our secrets are not revealed.

It may be shyness or even fame

or because we do not look the same.

There are many reasons why we do

often without a single clue.

Perhaps we want to be alone

like turning off a mobile phone

or we simply wish to disappear

to rid us of some crushing fear.

Sometimes we just need to think

be alone and have a drink.

Maybe we just don’t like folk

embarrassed at being broke.

Whatever the reason we want to hide

it’s always better to confide.

So do not keep looking back

untie yourself from the Rack.

Stretch up to your full height

strut about in full sight

and write yourself a mental note,

all life’s problems don’t mean nowt.
