Way too often do we bring down walls, just to have them rebuilt. It's learning when to bring them down and knowing when to put them up.

It's took me so long to bring down my walls, but I did. 
Slowly, breaking down piece by piece of old memories.
Making way for the new, Making way for you.. 
It took patience I didn't know I had, but I found 
Cautiously moving, but finding peace that had been lost. 
Finding peace within me, peace and truth. I thank you. 
Walls that took years to make, walls built in silence 
How pain does make a person forget to be human. 
It took me so long to bring down these walls, but I did. 
How I tore through old rubbish of dreams forgotten 
Why did I allow myself to forget to feel?
What was I protecting myself from? 

As I think back, I'm reminded, it kind of felt like this. 
An endless burning in the bottom of a pit 
Being engulfed by a cruel and spiteful world 
Old wounds forgotten, new ones made. 
I guess it's time to lay new foundation. 
So I begin building, but this time making my walls stronger. 
Endless nights of tossing and turning, restlessness. 
Oh How I know this well, my old companion. Insomnia. 
I hear the breaking of a beated heart, Can you hear it? 
cautiously moving, for now my peace has been misplaced.
So I begin building, but making my walls stronger. 

I think this time I will build a door, just incase. 
For when I try to brave a day, a new.
I will make this house my home for protection. 
building strength within every wall made. 
Every wall a memory, a tear and a goodbye 
How I'll remember you.. How I'll miss you..  brick by brick..
