Shield Me

Shield me from violence,
the influence of the media.
Shield me from hate,
corruption and greed.
Shield me from poverty,
its hunger and thirst.
Shield me from conflict,
the continuous outcries
for rights and knowledge.
Do you realize what you've done?
Hiding me from dangers.
Protecting me, I know.
But what will happen
when I am exposed,
And all I possess
Is blissful ignorance!
