Allow me to introduce myself,
I have built walls around me.
Physically all you see is bandages but emotionally
There are more tears in me. Scars from being
Destroyed my soul, the very reason
I push you away doesn’t mean I don’t need help,
My deficiency and your sufficiency makes me feel
Too vulnerable to hide in my foolish pride and hurt, yet
I’m so determined to tear down these walls,
Walls built out of fear. Love and courage
Stretched out their hands to assist me, but I refused them.
I let you help, while I clench my fist from the fear of being hurt.
