Your Wall

It’s okay to smile
And hide your broken heart
It’s okay to laugh
While you slowly fall apart
It’s okay to say
You’re used to things this way
As you watch them all
Behind your special wall
Protected

It’s okay to blink
While you watch them live their lives
It’s okay to sigh
While they go off in breathless rides
It’s okay to stand
Or lend a helping hand
As you watch them all
Behind your special wall
Protected

It’s okay to watch
Do nothing but watch
It’s okay to feel
Do nothing but feel
It’s okay to risk
But you just can’t allow yourself to risk
So you just watch them all
Behind your special wall
Protected

But it’s so okay to breathe
Those three dangerous words
And it’s okay to fight
For something that could break all your might
It’s damn okay to bleed
I am asking you to be freed
From simply just watching them all
From that thick impenetrable wall
Protected

Stop going around in circles
Stop repressing the piercing pain
Stop hiding behind that wall
Please fight and risk the fall
Live through it all
Unprotected

It’s okay to smile
After a broken heart
It’s okay to laugh
After you fall apart
It’s okay to say
You’ll make things go your way
As you watch the pieces fall
With the crumbling of your wall
