The Fort

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Saturday, July 18, 2009

Underneath I all
is where I sit
behind the mask
under the shield

I created my fort
so no one could see
it's better this way
or is it really?

As the years have gone on,
the fort has gotten bigger
the walls have gotten thicker
there is less and less I can see

What I thought was protecting me
is now blocking my sight
is now stopping my movement
is now not making sense to me

I want to break it down
but what will I find?
who will I see?
what will I experience?

This fort is no longer serving me
I can't find my way out
I can't find the light
oh wait, yes I can

I hear the voices outside
I see the smiles
I feel the healing hands
I am now free
