This is a poem my son wrote, every time I read it I feel his pain he was going through, it always makes me tear up. Brandon wrote this poem when he was about 16 years old, going through a rough part of his life. He is a wonderful Son and I love him very much. Very insightful poem.

Let me know what you think.

I Build Walls

I build walls:

Walls that protect, walls that shield,

Walls that that say I shall not yield or reveal,

Who I am or how I feel.

I build walls:

Walls that hide, walls that cover what’s inside,

Walls that stare or smile or look away,

Silent lies,

Walls that even block my eyes,

From the tears I might have cried.

I build walls:

Walls that never let me truly touch,

Those I love so very much,

Walls that need to fall,

Walls meant to be a fortress are prisons after all.
