Poetry: Broken Walls

by M. J. Joachim





I am not a prisoner
That’s too easy a fate
For anyone who’s strong
Like me, escaping what’s escaped
You may look and wonder
You’d do it anyway
I am just a person
Edges slightly frayed
Shock and wonder scare you
Do not look too close
You might see someone smiling
The past is but a ghost
Take the journey with me
Lest I take it all alone
Love is not a mystery
It’s feeling safe at home
