Guarded

it’s not what people say
it’s what they do
i am taking a long look,
a dispassionate view

no high ideals, no altruism here
no respect for heartfelt commitment and love
self-preservation is all that we have
the changeable masks of the hawk and the dove

i am beyond reach
on my fortress rock
no one should request
the key to my lock
