Hermit Crab - A Poem by Angela Bridgman

Post by TGTarheel » Fri Nov 18, 2016 10:25 pm

As a hermit crab does she dwell
Safe within a borrowed shell
Here she lives in fear
Of the outside world
She feels so near

She exists here all alone
Only home she's ever known
Fearing what she'll find
Danger lies ahead
Safety left behind

No longer confined, free at last
All her doubts now in the past
Free now to explore
All the places
She feared before

This was written at age 31...in the week after my return from Thailand after my final surgery.
