Shield Me

Photo by Jonathan Borba on

Too much noise

Activity all around

People walking back and forth

Kids yelling and crying

Bombarded by stimuli

I feel it all falling in on me

I have to escape

I can’t focus

It is getting so hard to breathe

And my heart is beating overtime

Please show me the way out

Wrap me in the protection

I can only find in your arms

Fandango’s Friday Flashback – October 25

Fandango started the Fandango’s Friday Flashback post a while back and I think only a handful of times have I posted ON Friday.  Once again I am a day behind… please forgive me!

The idea is to expose your readers to posts they may have missed or never saw.  So I travel back to October 25 just last year.  I hope you like this poem originally posted here.


Don’t challenge me

I won’t back down

I won’t listen to your lies

And I protect my own

You lost your chance

When you turned your back

You can’t push me around

I’m stronger than you know

Don’t challenge me

You won’t win
