A Fort well guarded,
Why should the bridge ever lower down the moat?
No reason valid enough to open its doors.
Is it cold indifference?
Or is it self preservation?
A mask of ineptitude
Taken as fortitude.
A reality of vulnerability
Showcased as gaiety.
To choose an option between the two,
The turmoil the world knows not.
Yet better off unaware..
Some winds do blow at various intervals
Aiming to knock down these walls
But why should the guard be let down
When reasons and experiences
Teach lessons etched in time.
