hidden behind a wall. one that only seems to expose of the light through the cracks that have been made over time. a hint of hope that gleams in your eyes. reminds you that the light is only ever closer than imagined. that one day you’ll be strong enough to tear down the wall. all on your own. free from the bricks that confine you. but for now. you peer at the world through the cracks. right now. you are afraid that the light is only a mirage. that it’s all just a sick game. a trap. that when you tear the wall down. when you let your guard down. you’ll only be torn apart again by what awaits you on the other side. so. you stay there.with your back against the wall. slowly bring yourself down to your knees. you close your eyes to try to escape your reality. looks like you’ll be here a while.
