I had a wall once
’round a fortress made of stone
wherein I was safe

I had a wall once
to which you walked up boldly
no weapon, no shield

I had a wall once
and thought the gates rusted shut
until you stepped through

I had a wall once
but it fell in disrepair
I was lost in you

I have no wall now
it’s but rubble ‘neath the grass
I’m okay with that

I have no wall now
will you help me build a fence?
that should be enough
