Guarded

1

 

A heart tempered in the forge of this world,

Guarded, walled and isolated

In youth a heart that was unfurled

 

Lessons learned, the tongue is held

A private world kept within

Far from the one in which we dwell

 

Unspoken words kept in chains

Too far gone now to care

The scars and sadness still remain

 

Looking backward becomes unclear

While forward is now short of sight

Right now is the time held most dear
