I have lived with walls beyond scaling,
I’ve also slept under open skies.
I’ve drenched myself in voices of those I ignored,
I’ve scattered to ashes, been reborn and died,
hoping I would finally belong.
But I never did.
And I think I never will.
So it’s back to the highest towers for me,
hoping and believing someday I will heal
enough to venture into the world again
and not be a foe to pain.
