Emotional Armor

Sometimes you have to wear the armor of indifference

To avoid being hurt by displaying the fact that you care

There is a division between those who care and others

Who think it a pleasure to poke fun at the sensitive people

Those who are happy and joyous at achievements of their friends

And are unhappy and sad at the failure for those they love

Empathy has to be shielded from the heartless

Not to bail out on the genuine emotions, but kept hidden

Not to utter empty words of platitudes, but real heartfelt concern

Written in response to the following;

Your daily word prompt;






Word of the day challenge;



Opposites Attract Challenge # 14

Today’s word: joyous

Antonyms: displeased, dissatisfied, joyless, sad, unhappy, unpleased, unsatisfied
