I have a wall you cannot see
Because it’s deep inside of me.
It blocks my heart in every side
And helps emotions there to hide.
You cannot reach in
I cannot reach out ,
You wonder what it’s all about.
The wall is built that you cannot see
Results of insecurity .
Each time my tender heart was hurt
The scars within grew worse and worse
So stone by stone
I built a wall
That is so still it will not fall.
Please understand that it’s not you ,
Continue trying to break through
I want so much to show myself,
And love from you will really help.
So bit by bit,
Chip at my wall
Till stone by stone it starts to fall,
I know the process will be slow
Its never easy to let go
Of hurts and failures long engrained,
Up ones heart from years of pain.
I am so afraid to let you in,
I know I might get hurt again.
I try so hard to break the wall,
But seems to get nowhere at all,
And left between them not a crack.
The only way to make it fall ,
Are imperfections in the wall.
I did the best I could to build
A perfect wall but there are still
A few small flaws which are key
To break through the wall to me.
Please use each flaw to cause a crack,
To knock off the stack ,
For just as stone by stone
With every hurt,
With every pain,
So stone by stone the wall will break,
As love replaces every ache,
Please be the one who cares enough
To find the flaws no matter what.
