This Wall of Mine

November 27, 2008
By Amanda Sinfuego, Clovis, NM

I have a wall you cannot see because it’s deep inside of me
It blocks my heart on every side and helps emotions there to hide
You can’t reach in ….I can’t reach out
You wonder what it’s all about
The wall I built that you can’t see… Results from my insecurity
Each time my tender heart was hurt …the scars within grew even worse
So stone by stone I built a wall …that’s now so thick it will not fall
Please understand that it is not you …..I beg you to try your best to get through
I want so much to show you myself because love from you...Would really help
So bit by bit chip at my wall …Till stone by stone it will start to fall
I know the process will be slow …It is never easy to let go
Of hurts and failures long ingrained …Upon ones heart of years of pain.
I am so scared to let you in …I know I might get hurt again
I try so hard to break through the wall …But I always seem to get nowhere at all
For stone upon each stone I have made a stack …And left between them not a crack
The only way to make it fall …Are all the imperfections in the wall
I did the best I could to build a perfect wall …But if you look in my eyes you will see every flaw
Which is the key …To breaking through the wall to me
Please use each little flaw …to cause a crack in the wall
To knock a stone off the stack
