Keep Out!

Here's one written by my 16-year-old self:

As I stare
At the annoying crack
On the wall
I am reminded
Of the barriers we put up
Between ourselves
And the world

Just walls, without cracks
In our minds
That keep us safe
But keep everyone else out
Walls of apathy,
Of faked indifference and true fear
Because what if they find out?

"You must break them
You need to reach out
It's what makes us human
Why then do you fear?
Why keep them out?
Why can't you trust another person?"
I fill in the crack so I can't hear the voice anymore.
