The Wall


It’s been days, several days

I think; I had been in a maze.

The walls were sky high

And all I could do was stand by.

The moonlight peeped curiously,

From in between the walls mysteriously.

I walked and walked the distance,

despite my legs cramped in resistance.

Even with my sharp eyesight,

I did not dare to explore the shadowy night.

Thirsty, hungry and cold I was,

And on top of that, I broke my jaws.

I realized slowly of what was happening,

It felt like I was the puppet stuck in his strings.

I was in my inner world, once again,

And this maze trick caused a lot of pain.

Lost and dejected, hopeless and bored,

I just wanted to run through my heart, a sword.

Before I could give up on myself forever,

I chose to ruminate about my life’s treasure.

I had friends, family, and my loved ones,

Waiting for me patiently with their big guns.

So, I couldn’t give up here. I could not.

The thought alone sprouted wings and whatnot.

I flew towards the endless walls 

Through the thick fog of confusion and falls.

Soaring through the clouds of depression,

Faced and hovered gently before the sun with no hesitation.

I am still amazed at the time I was stuck

In the maze for such a long period without any luck.

But now I am free and can breathe as usually,

And in the nights, I close my eyes, I see myself smiling devilishly at me.

    The last line has that lingering Cheshire cat vibe that ends it perfectly. I do like this, nice to ‘meet’ you.
