Beneath my Rock

Ought I not to hide beneath this rock
remaining still though barely safe
from all who mock and snide my worth
to cause this frown upon my head

So simple a man bereft of touch
who tugged the bell outside the gates
in search of love and closeness felt
but found superbia's vile embrace

[Hata Bildir]
