She gave a lot of excuses
So many reason why…
Reasons why she couldn’t try
She would sometimes cry
Make a scene
And go back to her life of sin
Cheating herself
And nobody else
She thought she was smart
And she would tell them this and that
She told them about the wall
The wall that was responsible for her fall
She would exaggerate about its height
“Oh! What a sight!” she would cry
“It’s so tall!”
But she was only fooling herself
There was really no wall
Her fears and imagination had teamed up
They created a wall
They built it
She supported it
And to her, it existed
What a prey…on her they feasted!
She was her own worst enemy
Building nonexistent walls all around her
Walls that would deter her…
…Walls that were stopping her from being who she should have been
A figment of her imagination
What an evil creation!
A wall seen…
Seen only by her!

What a waste of talent!
What a waste of a beautiful destiny!
Tear down the walls, pretty one!
Recreate a new path!
Forge on!
Don’t hold back your greatness!
Be the you you were created to be!
The you you were called to be!
Not the you decorated with fear!
You are great!
Created perfectly by God!
Be the you He created you to be!
Not the you the world wants you to be!
