A Thousand Walls

In my little bubble, I know the glass is cracking. Or maybe my stains are becoming more apparent, I’m not really looking for an answer. What I’m looking for isn’t an escape nor a shortcut, it’s a sign that all will be ok.

A thousand walls go up, my scars start to burn again. The walls protect me from fear, but they also close me into my mind. The magic of the Universe outside has disappeared, it’s all within now and I’m actually quite ok with that. The sliver of light coming in from my window does start to pour something into my heart, but, this trap of thinking I’m stuck in still has my feet buried underneath its mud.

A thousand walls close in on me and I’m grateful for the protection, but, I realize now they’re too close. I’m losing my grasp on my heart’s voice but my intuition is yelling at me, I know it’s time to listen. I lean back into the depths of the darkness my room presents, and let the little sliver of light beam into my eyes; the duality of both brings me comfort.

“All is well, the nerves and the thoughts are all in your control. Let go and trust, with growth comes growing pains. Put down your walls and plant your roots, it’s time you decide how to live your journey – in fear’s hands or in your own.”


A little flashback from my past, I intended to write this about where I’m at in my journey now, but, the past came flooding back. Fear was a close companion in my youth, and when I finally broke free, miracles flowed in my life like a dream. I would never trade my past or my thousand walls because they let me grow into the fearless and free soul I am now. Here’s to letting down walls, breaking free and emerging as the truest you!!! Be fearless and free -Ace

  1. This gripped my attention from the start and it stayed that way till the end. I’m glad you broke free and it’s true miracles happen when you become, or at least try to, fearless. Best of luck for the future! ✨
