A scared little boy sits in a bubble he made himself.
Strange place to find a man isnít it?
His fears consume him.
He lashes out.
For good reason?
What has this accomplished?
The boy retreats to his bubble
Same fears, no reason.
Fears protect him,
They guide him,
They injure him.
The man knows this
But the boy wonít move.
The man seeks solace,
Will the boy allow it?

If I understand this correctly

This is a boy within a man. Regardless, great poem JroP.

a poem from Every Man

everyone has their bubble they escape to... trying to stay there is what becomes difficult, but it is so safe there...
holler if you want to.
