My castle was forged from hate and love.
It is guarded by emotions,
Protected by a shell if deep insecurity.
Trust and Respect are the monarchs that rule my kingdom
Their laws are absolute
And I have abided by their rules for many years.
The shell had created itself
Oppression and Depression became my foes.
Alcoholism from my father nearly toppled my castle
And his, but Fate saved us.
Oppression from strangers,
Oppression from family,
Oppression is what I am most guarded from.
I know what the feeling is of being ignored,
Or being hated is like.
Depression causes my castle to faulter
I must be careful,
Before Depression takes it down.
My castle on any given day
Shines on with the cosmos
Sending a little light to other Monarchies.
They accept my light or reject it,
But my Castle will shine on.
It can not shine at its brightest
Because of my shell.
I must learn to forgive more,
To love more,
To live more
To break my shell for
My Castle's light is one to be seen by all.
