I ran head first

into the wall

started bashing my head against it

screaming for it to let me by

 

But it stood

Hard and strong

almost taunting me

daring me to surpass its strength

 

How can I?

I sat down, looking at the wall

it was so big, so high

there was no way I could get around it

 

I should just give up,

I think - accept the wall,

the block it provides

it's probably there for my best interest, right?

 

Maybe I can't handle what's on the other side

things are familiar over here

I know what to expect

even if it isn't making me happy

 

I have a choice here

stay behind the coldness of the wall

stay behind the hardness

stay behind the path that lay ahead

 

I have to find a way - let me think

I may have built it, it may take one brick at a time

but this wall is coming down

with my own bare hands

 

Wait, is that sunlight I see?

I feel warmth on my skin

The wall, so cold, holds me in no longer

I am finally free
