Shelter Me


This world is cold and beginning to break apart


Shelter me


The way we live now, we forget what’s in our hearts


Shelter me


We struggle to make sense of what we already know


Shelter me


And we stop learning, we no longer can grow


Shelter me


And yet when we think that positive times are near


Shelter me


Another destructive reason brings back our fear


Shelter me


We do not see the future because it is no longer bright


Shelter me


We only know the enemy we have to fight


Shelter me


And then life is over and the peace is finally here


Shelter me


But for some, it is a burning place of fear

Oh my. I dont think the end of this poem is very happy, is it? I love the idea of being sheltered and finding peace...where does that peace come from? Lovely poem :)

Ardie, the end is a place we all dont want to be. Thanks for checking this poem out and thanks for the kind words.
