"Give me pain if that's what's real, it's the price we pay to feel." -Next to Normal

The walls are strong,
and seem warm and unending,
the heart is pained,
with no intention of mending,
the mind is deep,
with its rafters filled with thought,

Do you think that you, alone, can elude being caught?

The eyes are steady,
with a certain stillness instilled,
The face is willed,
bound with want and covered in lines that are filled with zeal.

You are alone.
A seed,
alone in the dirt.

But that seed will grow into a beautiful thing,
A tree, one with the earth.

The author's comments:
This was basically something I wrote to myself when I way going through a hard time. The opening lines describe how I perceived myself. The latter lines are basically a reassurance that things will get better, which they did.
