Tearing Down Walls


I’ve built up so many walls.
It might take some time to tear them all down.
But, I’m working on it.
Slowly…

It took me my whole life to build these walls.
I’ve worked every day of my life.
I’m proud of this work I’ve done.
But, I think I’m ready to tear them down.

I’m ready to feel free.
I’m tired of hiding behind these walls.
I feel like I’m suffocating.
I need to breathe again.

These walls are not helping me.
These walls are hurting me.
These walls are depressing.

I thought I needed them.
To feel safe.
To feel secure.
To feel happy.
To feel good.

But, I think I’m wrong.
I think these walls are stopping me.
I think these walls are holding me back.
I think I need to break down these walls.

But, how?

How do I tear down my whole life?
How do I forget about it all?
How can I leave it all behind me?


I haven’t exactly found an answer to that question, but here’s a song that has helped me start to understand why these walls are hurting me.

Never Lost – Song

Thanks for reading!
I hope this post encourages you & reminds you that it’s never too late to break down the walls.

These scars…

These scars won’t last
They might hurt now
The pain just feels too real
Will they ever go away?

These scars cut deep
They are changing you
You can barely think anymore
Will it ever become normal again?

These scars are opening a new chapter
They could become positive
But, right now, they feel deadly
Will it ever feel good?

These scars have taken something from you
Maybe it’s happiness, or sadness
Or, innocence, or willingness
Or, maybe even your life?

But, even with these scars
You are still here
There’s still time
So, what will you do now?


These scars is a metaphorical poem I wrote during a confusing time in my life.
The scars mentioned (while they could be real scars) represent past mistakes/memories that will never be forgotten, and that are constantly haunting and hurting.”


Thank you for reading to the end!
I hope this poem encourages you to turn your scars into amazing things for your future self
because it’s never too late!

P.S. This poem was also inspired by this song!

Crave…

So, today’s post is a one-word prompt about the word “crave”.

. . .

So, it’s very late at night (this might be a short post) and I almost forgot to write today. And, the first things that came to my mind when I remembered that I had to write something for day 3 was: “I crave mac & cheese”.

. . .

I’m not exactly sure why this came to mind because mac & cheese isn’t really my favorite meal, but, I have been living in Chile for a few weeks now, and I think its’ simplicity, homey & comforting feel made me crave it.

This also made me realize that, when we travel, we usually crave the simple, little things from home.
And, when we are home, we crave/miss the simple, little adventures from our past/future travels.

Simple things really do make a difference!
Don’t overlook the little things!
Small things make more of an impact than you would think!

Thanks for reading this short & very late, but, hopefully, somewhat, insightful post!
