Behind These Walls

The walls grow higher and higher
Blocking out the light
The life
Stealing me away into a shelter from which
I might never see the sun.

Behind these walls of solitude and seclusion
I’m protected
I’m desperate
To learn how to stop this shell from becoming
A tomb.

Will this be the way of it
Always and forever
Higher and higher
Stronger and stronger
Invulnerable in my vulnerability?

This is the way of it
Hidden, wasting away
I am unbreakable
Behind these walls
Because there will be nothing left to break.
