Shell

A shell is what it is
We don't chose it
Yet it rules us
Gives us identity
Without it we are lost
Simply a shell
A place to call home
No one else can claim it
Some despise it
Other idolize it
Yet some pretend it is without meaning
Pretend is all they do
Merely a shell
One day beyond we will look
That day has yet to come
Strength and weakness wrapped in one
One dark as night
Should we fear it
We do...
But just a shell
No more
No less
A woven tapestry of time
So many stories it could tell
But never forget
It is only a shell
