Walls …

A high impregnable fortress …
Thick concrete … formidable and strong …
Ramparts unreachable …

Or so it seemed …

This prison I created …
To hide within …
Where I fled from pain …

But in that escape I lost all joy as well …
A life stuck in neutral …
Suspended animation …

A stranger to adventure …

But walls can always be breached …
Their strength a beguiling illusion …

And so did mine come tumbling down …
Almost in a day …
So swiftly did they fall …

Thus here I stand …

Able to embrace pain rather than shun it …
Able to feel joy rather than run from it …

Hot for the challenge of life on the edge …

Who needs walls …
