Held hostage

nomadic instincts held hostage 
In a self-constructed cage
by a force unseen, unknown
contains egos overblown


Its supremacy challenged, 
the giant withdraws
cannot differentiate 
friends from foes
unable to connect
pieces
of its fragmented 
virtues and vices


mirrors crack on seeing 
its unmasked face
reflect souls in all their shades
and trace
back thoughts 
to ingrained fears
of external evil
while the root of it
lay within
