Shielding Me

Don't try and protect me
it hurts no matter what you say
no matter how you say it
no matter how long till you tell me

Don't try and shield me
I'm too big to hide behind
no matter how high you hold it
no matter how fierce you defend

Don't look at me like your young one
I'm no so small any more
Look at me like your equal
I can help you, too

What a mournful poem. It put an image of a father and daughter in my mind. The daughter pleading with him to confide in her.

The image I got may be way off base, but for me, I could picture saying this (in a sense) to my dad.

Thank you for sharing.

I wrote this for my mum just because of everything that's been going on the last little while. She didn't tell me right away when my Nana got really ill and then tried to keep other little things from me, but in her way she did it to try and protect me. I found out anyway, and all the protecting in the world can't stop that kind of thing from hurting.

Whoops! Ramble lol.
