Shy Turtle

She pulls her head back 
tries to hunch into her shell
to avoid prying eyes,

hiding from those who peer
into her private affairs
to cast judgement on her. 

If only her secrets
could be kept inside
never to be discovered

by the curious or cruel.

She would be happy
going about her life 

slowly and methodically
and live for 100 years.
