Put Your Armor Down

silver and black round ornamentStunning Knight your armor masks your pain.
You fear removing it.  You can not remove it.
Your pain is private and  relentless.
Keep it behind your armor. Stay invulnerable.

Stay invulnerable on the outside — at least. 

Someday you will put your armor down.
You will probably cry openly in your vulnerable
Nakedness. Without your armor, who will you be?Certainly not a Knight. Hopefully, you can be 

The Child. The dreamer. The romantic.
Whatever you become, your vulnerably
Will create an inlet of compassion.
The universe will support you in unbelievable ways.

 Once you put your armor down. It can not be put back on.
