Somehow, You Got Through

December 22, 2011
For years I hid safely behind my wall,
but somehow you got through.
I thought my wall was better fortified,
filled with layers of barbed wire,
and brick.
Protected by layers and layers,
of strong precious metals.
But somehow you got through.
I'm not sure how you got in,'
after all I have been locked away,
and relocked away,
and then carefully locked away again,
for as long as I could remember.
But somehow you got through.
I let someone in before,
and it was the reason I locked myself away,
I wonder if this will turn out good or bad.

I really liked it because it is so true and I liked how you metaphorically described your "wall" Nice Job!
