In place of the walls
You brought down, she erected
An iron fortress.

This blog exposes the cycles of my ever changing life, including the growth and/or changes in my walk with God, and the highs, lows, and fluctuating differences in my reactions and actions towards the typical and atypical experiences that are inevitable in day to day life. I hope you enjoy it, and thank you for reading. Bless.

VERY POINTED! WE SEE WHY THE NEED FOR WALLS.
rusting finally sinking
amidst sorrowing seas
just because we are yet not sinking
does not mean we are not drowning

Beautiful and simple, yet it breaks my heart. I have been there, and I feel the pain.
I like that it can be read both ways as coming back as something stronger, or because she was damaged once she became even more damaged and put up walls that could not be broken in fear to protect her heart. Lovely.

You’ve read it correctly. Her strength is merely her weakness in disguise. Thank you.
Glad she is not ‘heartless’, walls can still be removed when the heart heals.
This is true. Thanks for reading my work.
Loved the art work Roja.
Thank you. Inspire by the song “Bulletproof” by La Roux.
I wish I could draw… I like your artwork and your words.
Unfortunately, I know about building up walls to protect one self…
Thank you. And there are rules to art really, draw whatever your hands lead you to draw.
I can barely draw stick figures. 😉
Amazing art of creativity of words. -Sagarika
