My walls of resistance are shattered The remnants of a great tower Lay as rubble at my feet. Released from the imprisonment The locks have been undone My shackles are no more. Before me lies a vast and open field Every direction opens to me I am free to run away. Standing still for what seems an eternity I hold on to old and empty rules, afraid to take a step. In the distance I see another soul Slowly making his way to me I feel the urge to hide. Within clear sight his beauty is clear His past transgressions wiped clean I stand before him transfixed. The rubble at my feet dissipates As he makes his way to me A calm peace overtakes me. His eyes see through my brilliant facade My insecurities melt away I recognize the familiar. For only a moment I wish for the wall, something to provide protection. The moment passes away. In the silence and the sound of his voice, My heart begins to beat again I feel lovely once more. The walls of resistance have fallen Their rubble soft white sand We walk out into the field.
