building up more and more walls

to try to protect yourself

but the walls

only hold the pain in

and keep love out

it isn’t addiction or depression

attacking the mind


it’s you

the walls hide who you are

the inner self, cabin fever raging

refusing the terms and conditions

until he breaks free

happy, wild, loved and healed

he knew he would survive
