The coverings were for warmth.

The wrappings were for protection.

The coverings were for isolation.

The wrappings were for insulation.


You put on a mantle that protects you from the biting cold.

You wrap yourself into a tight ball in a bid to shield yourself from the cutting indifference.

You isolate yourself from the source of perceived pain.

You go inwards to insulate yourself from the demeaning glance.


I am traversing a desert.

You are lonely in a crowd.

I am battling the raging storm.

You feel isolated while in good company.


Turn the lights on and see me.

Please turn off your prejudice and see us.
