The walls around me now

Being hurt many times, makes you not wanna trust anymore!

A OPEN HEART, FREE AND UNTOUCHED
HE CALLED ME NAMES IT HURT SO MUCH

I PLACED A STONE ALONG THE SIDE
TO SHEILD MYSELF I RUN AND HIDE

I THREW THAT STONE FOR HOPE OF CHANGE
THIS TIME FINDING I WASN'T TO BLAME

BRICKS THIS TIME IT WILL SURELY HOLD
MY HEART TUCKED TIGHT IN A TINY MOLD

A WALL NOW THERE SO STRONG AND TALL
PUSHING AWAY THE WRECKING BALL

A BATTLEFIELD WITH WRECKAGE AND DEBRIS
BEHIND THIS WALL THAT'S ALL YOU'LL SEE

NO GREEN PASTURES OR BRIGHT FLOWERS
FOR I FEEL SAFE TO HOLD THAT POWER

ALONE I'LL STAND TO HOLD THIS BLAME
THIS IS MY LIFE , THIS IS MY PAIN

I am continuously reading this to people who also have their walls up, It's funny to me how so many people go through the same stuff at different times in their life. we all go through shit but it's how we handle it that is the important thing.
