Like a snail 

You proudly carry around 

That shell of yours

Protecting you from

The world’s negativity

Hiding your true body

Keeping the world 

To take a look at your soul

But at the same time

Keeping you

From realizing how strong

Your heart had become

How magnificently

Your soul could now shine

The shell had become

Your shield

As well as

Your tomb
