armoring…
preparing…
for defense
battle
death
survival
plate upon plate – thicker and thicker
watch out!
might get hurt if it’s not hefty enough!

heavy to carry around
can’t feel the wind
can’t see the sun
all geared up
ready to fight
stand my ground
tense, tight, tough

“LET GO INTO ME” he said
“LET GO INTO”
“LET GO”
“LET”
“LET”
“LET…”

at rest in the arms of God
all the plates of armor
