My Wall

Well,  I have spent years building this wall of mine.  Brick by brick, I put up the wall; its mortar representing a painful emotional experience I have gone through.  It has slowly become my security blanket and just like the Peanut’s character Linus, I carry it with me everywhere I go.  It has become my comfort zone and where I feel safest.  I constantly fight to keep it around me but for some reason the mortar has begun to crumble and the bricks are showing signs of wear and tear. Cracks are forming and this terrifies me to no end.  I scramble to rebuild my wall and this time to make it stronger and to make myself immune from more pain.
