“One by one

The bricks were laid

Higher and higher

The wall was made

 

An endeavour to keep out

Dangers of outer space

But also absence of insight

Into the real menace

 

Who dwelled and lurked

Within that rising wall

And with every single brick whose

Dominance grew like a snowball”

    1. We guard our heart to save ourselves from the hurt that outside world inflicts but we don’t know that sometimes we need to be saved not from the outer world but from ourselves. We are responsible for our fears and negative thoughts.
