I scream to the wall that binds me up
I claw at its surface until my fingernails snap
I cover it with blood, my only lifeline
Then I realize it is me who’s been keeping it up.
So I dig below until I got out
Out of the walls that keep me out
Of peoples lives and peoples buzz
And I see the sunlight for the first time.
I breathe the air that suffocates me before
It didn’t change apart from how I view things now
The air that used to kill me, now brings me life.
I’m glad I tear the walls down.

In response to #FWF Free Write Friday! I admit I’m starting to get hook in free writing. It just brings out everything in you and all the words out of you.
P.S. I recycled the image I used for this post. My original entry using this same image goes back to two years ago and can be found here.
