THIN WALLS


THIN WALLS

S.JENSEN © 2017

SURROUNDINGS

CLOSE OFF

WITHIN THIN WALLS

INSULTS

AND ARGUING

DRAINING

NEGATIVE REMARKS

ALL WORDS

FROM THE MOUTHS

CARRY OVER

ACROSS INTO

MY INNER

SANCTUM

DISRUPTING

MY BLESSED

PEACE

I COUNTER

THEIR INSENSITIVE

WAYS

WITH THE STRENGTH

FROM EVERY

FIBER OF

MY BEING

I DON’T KNOW

THEM

NOR FROM MY

OBSERVATIONS

DO I

EVEN WANT TO

THE BOUNDARIES

I PERSEVERE

ENDURING TO

CONCENTRATE

TO CONQUER

THE DEMONS

AND FEARS

OF

THIS DARKNESS

SO OUTSIDE

MY COMFORTS

THE CHAOS

OF THAT WHICH

CURSED

YEARS PASSED

DO I TRAVEL

BEYOND

THESE WALLS

THAT SO LIMIT

AND THEIR WAYS

KNOWING ITS

ALL I CAN DO

INSOMNIA STRIKES

PUSHING

FARTHER

THE BOUNDARIES

OF THIS

THINKING

BRAIN

LOVING

KINDNESS

SHINES WITHIN

ALLOWING

SOME SLEEP

TO CARRY

FOR A FEW

HOURS

FOR I MAY NOT

BE ABLE

TO DO MUCH

TO CHANGE

THE SURROUNDINGS

BUT I CAN

TURN MY

MUSIC UP

DROWN THEM

IN MY MANTRAS

ERASE THOSE

NEGATIVE

THINGS WHICH

I HEAR

BY FOCUSING

ON WORDS

OF WISDOM

AND MOTIVATED

PARTS OF THOSE

WITHIN MY

HEART

TO SPREAD

LIGHT

AMONG THE DARK

PENETRATING

FEARS

WIPING IT CLEAN

TO BE STRONGER

THAN THIS

CONSTANT BATTLE

I FACE

WHICH SO DRAGS

THIS SOUL

THROUGH MUDDLED

FOG

SO STOPPING

THE POLLUTING

OF MY AIR WAVES

AND SORTING

THROUGH

THIS DISORDER

THAT DISRUPTS

EVERYTHING

AND THEIR

COMPLETE

DISREGARD

FOR FELLOW

HUMANITY

IT WILL NOT

CONQUER ME

I SHARE ALL

I AM BLESSED WITH

FROM

THE CHALLENGED

MISERY

SO NOT TO

ALLOW

THE DARKNESS

WHICH SO INVADES

MY BEING

TO BE MY

ENLIGHTENED

ABSOLUTION

WHILE HOLDING

DEAR ALL THOSE

WHICH

BOOST MY SPIRIT

UPLIFTING MY SOUL

TO SO OVERCOME

(BATTLES WITH

PTSD AND NEGATIVE

BEINGS

AROUND ME TO

SO OVERCOME IT

ALL)
