My shell,
My defense,
My only comfort,
I, that is, my true being,
My consciousness, 
My essence,
Simply, as it is my nature, tread not beyond the shield,
My armor is bound to me along with misleading expressions,
The walls, in which, my thoughts remain,
My mask conceals, contains, deceives,
My fortress,
Behind both latch and lock,
Cast without call for hinge, nor key,
My shell.
