Behind these four walls
Every wall a different mask
Each limb trying to hold on
Walls closing in on me
Coming closer and closer
Strength has become my weakness
Slowly sinking
I carry my walls
Walls become thicker
With each mask I add
Heavier and heavier
Trapping me
Suffocating inside
Trying to find a way out
But scared of what is outside
Walls so thick inside
Even I don't know who I am
Too scared to find out
Slowly I turn
Then I realize
Over these walls
You stand there
Accepting who I am
Showing me
It's okay
To drop these walls
Helping me break the masks
And helping me see
How not to be trapped
