Vigilance

blacksmith-s-forge

In an rare moment of unguarded confidence

I let a friend read my poetry.

” I learned something about you today,”

Striking fear into my soul.

I felt myself lock into place

Like a blacksmith’s hammer to iron,

shaping my resistance,

building my fortress.

    What your friend learned..I’m betting nothing earth shattering…just the fact that he got a peek into your soul….scary. No one I know reads my poetry….crazy right! Well penned:)
