Glass is so weak and fragile;
It breaks from slight pressures.

But its beauty cannot be shattered;
So I must become bulletproof glass.


The author's comments:
The meaning of this, is toughen up, and don't let things get to you, but stay sensitive, because those are the kind of people that we all need.

Writers are a less dangerous version of the career criminal. Everywhere they go, they see the potential for the perfect crime. The difference is that writers have better self control.

Nice metaphor.

Ah- maz-ing. You're just great, you know that? Simple and Elegant should be your catch phrase. Wonderfully done, as usual.

Yeah, glass, (to me at least) has a lot of metaphorical value.

I like the message here, its an interesting idea. The imagery is facinating, at least for me. Keep it up!(:
