This was written a fortnight or so before the day of posting when I was in an extremely depressed state because of pressure from all angles...
The Darkened Shield - 8th April 2010
Encompassing Earth lies a secret blockade,
Beyond it are pleasures abound.
How long I have thought about why it is there...
The depressing truth, I have found.
The rest of humanity, unaffected by it,
Me standing alone, I am stopped.
The world can have happiness and treasure is theirs,
And one person, his balloon is popped.
Searching for shoulders to lay on and cry,
He notices his schoolyard mates
They care more about trends than their friends,
Leaving Lady Luck powering my fates.
Technology has always been kinder to me,
With invincibility at my fingertips.
Yet my life still feels empty without people,
And acting over feeling causes mental slips.
Somewhere in the world is a boy and a girl,
Who love me for whatever I do.
Looking out for them is no easy task,
When thousands of people block me too.
