2 (who?)
I build walls to keep things out.
I build walls to keep things in.
I build walls to keep things to myself.

I build walls to avoid questions.
I build walls to avoid judgement.
I build walls to avoid constant Slander.

I build walls to hide my pain.
I build walls to hide my past.
I build walls to hide my emotions.

I build walls to protect myself from the world.
I build walls to make myself seem strong.
But I can't hold up a whole strusture alone.

I become weak.
Everything builds up behind these walls
I fall.
The walls crumble.
Everything that has been held back is released.

Walls are not easily built.
It takes time to build them up as strong as before.
Even after they are built.
It's not like a bone.
It doesn't grow back stronger.
It's weaker.

Wow. This is pretty powerful stuff, but very connectable with me. I know how you feel with the walls and such (I myself being one of those wall-people) and am glad that you could channel those feelings into such a great literary piece. Well done. :)
