creating me [using words]

Silent Courage

I love how shy
turtles are,
like me, and Ellia.
They plop out of sight
or stand stone still

I fancy a shell—
what a wonderful way
to hide
your own skin

Would a case protect her?
Maybe. Sometimes
Things wrestle you from within

You tuck in your head
not to shun the world
but to fight in the dark
your one lonely battle
to find your one
dazzling life.
