I’ve heard Knights
With broken shields
Promise to protect
Princesses from the world.

I’ve tried to rewrite
These fairytales,
But I’ve run out of
Ink, and someone
Carved them into walls.
Truth is, no one can protect anyone from anything. We're all just looking for comfort.

But I guess that's why we make connections with people, to feel less alone on this journey. That in itself, I think, is a beautiful thing. We're all alone...together.

It's cemented into our thoughts as a society, it's given as objective.

I never thought of it that way. Even if one person feels alone, and even if we don't know each other, we are alone in this together.

A odd, but somewhat satisfying feeling I got after reading this.

You can protect someone from something, and i'm not sure what you meant with looking for comfort, but that could perhaps be done at the same time.
Reply
:icondylanseto:
DylanSeto Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2014  Student Artist
Not always.

What I meant by comfort is...we're looking to find purpose.

:iconforreal21:
forreal21 Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2014
I never stated that you always can.
But you stated that you can never protect anyone from anything.
Yet now you say ''not always'', implying that there are times that you can.

You  shouldn't be so loose with your wording, it devalues your message.

The best messages are those which you can stand behind and defend, it seems i have barely tested the defense and it's already crumbling...

Care to redeem it?

Looking to find purpose..? What does purpose have to do with comfort, unless the comfort is what you seek? In which case, why phrase the wording like that..?

Getting hurt in this world may be inevitable, but we usually do get to choose who we allow to hurt us.

It's not always people hurting us though.

True, but the definition of hurt must then be submitted to scrutiny and additional clarification. Sticks and stones may break my bones but words... words might hurt me deeply, causing great emotional, mental, and psychological damage leading to lowered self-esteem, inappropriate social behavior, potential substance abuse and overall decreased work-related efficiency. ;-)

Do you usually have trouble deciphering texts? Or is it a "I agree with this" kind of thing?

No I just had no idea how to respond to this, I mean, it just reminds me of things that happened in the past. I have no idea what I was thinking while writing that. It was late at night I'm guessing.

It could also be interpreted as talking about the ideal man but I didn't mean it in that sense.

All I've ever needed
Was a shoulder that I could trust
Not to let me fall
When my knees
Would no longer hold me up.
And in return,
I offer two broad shoulders
And an open heart...
