From the comfort of one’s cosy corner,
Internal perspectives feel relatively safe.
A little turmoil with a queasy discomfort,
A mild depression causes some hesitancy.
Surroundings are framed by a familiarity,
Time and instance holds hostility at bay.
Introspection seeks to reveal some clarity,
Star gazing against a cloud covered night sky.
Security is sensed from behind a closed curtain,
A world shielded from most external intrusion.
Choice retains a closed door without welcome,
Observations construct a perceived peculiarity.
Oddness may lurk behind a twitchy demeanour,
Courage prefers the privacy of an inner sanctum.
