Walls

Writing on the Walls

We build up prisons in our worlds
that rely on walls of stone,
but in our minds the walls are ours
to build and break alone.

I watched the walls fall down today
then looked around, and found
that I was free of everything that
yesterday would’ve held me down.

I stepped outside the ruins today
and walked into the sun;
and because they had not seen the light,
my eyes began to burn.

Then, I put the walls back up
and with my pen in hand,
I began to draw my dreams,
the things I’ve seen and understand.

Now, I find comfort
in writing on the walls…
Except for me, the words
remain a mystery to all.

Of course, it may seem curious,
until you stop and see –
that I am this world’s creator;
these walls belong to me.
