someone

You don’t need the world,

when someone means the world.

 

Grappled by fear

in times tough and dark,

someone makes it easy

like a walk in the park.

 

Attacked by the bullets

and devoid of armor,

someone makes feel you safe

like a ship in the harbor.

 

Benumbed by the chaos,

by the confusion and clutter.

Someone brings the peace

by pulling down the shutter.

 

Suffocated by the gloom

fighting the odd and unfair,

someone lets you out

to breathe in the fresh air.

 

Burnt by words

which towards hurt steer,

someone soothes the soul

and brings back the cheer.

 

You don’t need the world,

when someone means the world.
