Aegis

The shell is strong
Strong enough to hold up
Against all the lure and love
All the affection and pity
All the scorn and disdain
All the glories and promises
All the persecutions and vindications
That you can throw at me.

For ages now I am living inside Aegis
Which has become a part of me;
Or I a part of it;
I don’t know nor want to
If there is any escape out of this.

You say I’m caged
You say I’m locked
You say I’m withdrawn and afraid
I say I’m protected and covered
And warm that no spring can enter me.
