Like the smooth nutshell,

The hard exterior hides

Man's inner values.

      As the nut's outer shell protects its seed, so we also tend to protect our inner values by not exposing them until a "right time." It seem to be that we have learned to do that from past experiences.

      Love comes from within. Sometimes we hide behind ourselves too much. Wonderful Haiku.
