Within these Walls

Written by: Marianne Nolido

Always closing the window,
cursing someone's shadow.
Always alone,left with nothing to do.
within these walls, I'm simply blue.

It's a place where I remember my past.
A smile that didn't last.
It's where I can dream,write and sing.
But He's the only one witnessing.

within these walls I let everything out.
My anger,my tears,my desires but can never let it out.
and w/ a paper and a pen,
writing it all down, the question of "How & when?"

within these walls I hide my light.
The beauty,the madness & the serenity,kept it here every night.
what are my chances in this shallow world?
who will awaken me in my own little world?

Am I just in disguise outside these walls?
should I chase m,y dreams & answer all His signs & calls?
One day I know that within these walls will be shown.
And I'll be prepared to share it to the world & let others be blown.

But now is not the time,so I'm gonna stay here for awhile.
let my songs,poems & time heal my next journey in a mile.
because for now,within these walls is a secret & a mystery.
But I swore to myself that someday when I step out,I'll be ready.
