Paper Wall

Paper Wall

A Poem by Bent Dragon (Eric)

A short poem about secrets that you keep from everybody and how hard it can be to let them out.



Paper Wall

By:  Bent Dragon


I sit behind a wall of pages,

that surround me like doubts.

They question my every move like sages;

making is impossible for me to come out.


Many secrets lay within,

secrets that I need to get out.

But behind my paper wall,

they are trapped by my doubts.


Halting any progress

Stalling any change.

As I stand among people I often want to shout

and make everything trapped within come out.


But as I open my mouth I find the words aren't there;

they've been whisked away by the sages.

Whisked away by my fear,

and for that I shed a tear.

you know what, I can identify extremely well with this poem because my dark side is always kept inside the same paper walls you have with you....and honestly, accepting ourselves in totality is what is important and then we feel COMPLETE
