Shield of Steel

Poetry By: Ian Dawn

the things we all put up to keep us afe or do they?

Like the perpetual motion of the turning wheel

I am protected from you by my shield of steel

The insults you use to make me kneel

Are deflected by my shield of steel

You try to break me with your hardened keel

But can not break thru my shield of steel

The trouble is that I can no longer feel

Because I have to use my shield of steel

I wish I could predict the hand you deal

So I may lower slightly my shield of steel

But until that day comes I will not yield

I will not lower my mighty shield of steel
