We, humans, have the proclivity to shut down emotionally in a state of emotional crisis.We all feel that we are safeguarding ourselves from all the pain and angst by keeping the help at bay and downplaying the hurt we are going through. It takes a lot of courage to open to someone and to share your deep emotional thoughts with people around us. We all feel very vulnerable by doing so, but are we really keeping us safe this way?
Is loneliness your companion which makes you feel complete Is tiredness your friend ache and pains gives you hand Is the emptiness in your life makes you fill the void with all the empty memories Are you safeguarding all your truth so you don't need a friend Is the bitterness in your voice keep the enemies at bay Is the cowardness in your way of life keep the harm away Is the sourness in the relationships armor your heart and keeps it safe Is the ugliness in the ways of life keeps the lovers at arms' length Is the foulness in your voice shuts down the path to your soul keeps you away from the ghouls Has the proclivity towards broken faith keeps you from looking straight into his eyes stops from your faith being restored Are your wings broken so you can't fly to strange new lands Have you made yourself tone-deaf so you can't be swayed by the music of your land How are you keeping yourself safe these days?
