THE SHELL

To keep myself
out of sight from this world,
I enfold myself with a
firm pale shell;

I keep myself far away
from the uproar of this world,
so that it would not reach
to my ear anymore;
The awful din makes me
fall into apprehension always;

I keep myself far away
from the spooky scene of
this world,
so that it would not scare me anymore;
The horde gives me dreadful feelings;

I keep myself far away from
the falsifiers of this world,
so that I would not drop down
into their erroneous talks;
I don't trust them;

Now the shell is my abode,
This defend me from
the ferocious world,
I can hear the dulcet tune
of the sea shore,
I can see the alluring view
where the sky meets the sea;
I can feel the safeness now,
The cool sedate breeze makes
everything peaceful now;

Now I can sleep in tranquility.
