Let it Fall

Let it Fall

That glimmer of happiness in your eyes

That burning energy in your core

Why are these moments so few and short?


That fevered smile and raucous laugh

That need to give all of your best

I see now, I see now


This may catch you unaware

But that shield you wear, only lowered in your slumber

The one forged from your past, to protect your future

May cost you those moments I spoke of

I dare say that shield is a viper

For it protects you from the good, as much as the bad

So I dare you, plea to you

Lower that shield

Let it fall

Let it fall
