Prisoner of Fear

Did you ever wonder why,
he sits there with a sigh,
never saying a word?
He cannot even begin
to express what is within
the yearning of his heart.
He is a prisoner of fear,
the worst that one can bare.
He is inferior in all ways.
He bares his shame every day.
No one else can ever get inside.
In his shell, he is fortified.
He is starving for a friend,
yet, his mistrust knows no end.
Must protect, must keep safe,
must guard oneself at all cost.
The one thing is though,
he can never count the loss.
The prisoner of fear is his own worst enemy.
