I had been so preoccupied building walls to insulate myself that I
hadn’t taken the time to know myself.
So I picked myself up off my ass and started sitting.
…and so I sat.
As I sat I decided to come to terms with my fears
I decided to unravel and unwrap the layers that construct me.
I sat and I began to relive those moments that I knew haunted,
yet molded me.
Purging the negative, consuming the positive
releasing the dark, inhaling the light.
With every breath I took,
with every expansion of my lungs
I destroyed the walls that I’ve constructed since before I was aware of them.
With each breath a wall was knocked down,
as I sat they shattered and crumbled,
as I sat I fought
and therefore, I was free.
