We’re No Better by Richard Mar

We live each day sheltered;
Away from details we fear,
Building invulnerable beliefs;
Feeling better than we’re.
Then down our walls fall
Hitting harder than all
We never prepared to receive.
The deadness we feel
When that epiphany hits.
Suddenly, we’re no better than others.
It’s all been a cover by those who deceived
Out of love and protection.
To help us believe in that life of perfection
We could never achieve.
