A Crack in the Wall


I have lived my life

enclosed in a wild shell

cocooned in a world of thoughts

keeping and to myself

an introvert in the making



look at this door-less cell

where have lived my life

it’s full of refuse

whose stench is choking

hence the stink in my thoughts



I won’t die in this cell

with a crack in the wall

and a crowbar on the floor

I will tear the wall

and walk out of the cell

to take a fresh breath

and live a free life
