I built a mighty fortress high

To shield my stricken soul

Lived days and nights in solitary

Untouchable was my goal

Walls kept life out and kept me in

I wandered through alone

A maze that kept me coming back

To where I was unknown

And then one day from a crack there shone

A light from within one wall

I saw a way out, I saw the way in

One by one, bricks began to fall

And from the ruins I made a house

With a door that can open wide

Now life can flow freely, as I see fit

I no longer fear what’s outside


Inspired by The Daily Post Daily Word Prompt: solitary
