I get it now
Sometimes you have to hold back
And not care too much
The way to keep up a wall
But still be one
Hundred percent myself involves the passion
For life and the truth that I
Can share without going past the
Reserved stage
Keeping your guard up
Is difficult when you
Are not aware of exactly how
Close you are and what that
Feeling means;
The times that you have had to
Evaluate a connection
Are important but must
Take into account the basis for
Having a wall up inside yourself
No matter how much
You want to jump in with two feet.
Hurrying down that slide can hurt
If you don’t know
Why you shouldn’t,
And making that mistake
Is the most heart wrenching fall
Of them all…
