This Fragile Life

If life hasn’t brought you to your knees yet
Don’t worry, it will,
Or maybe you have built a wall
Around your heart
Keeping the harsh world out
And vulnerability in
That’s ok too
It’s understandable

But now you know different
And you know that it’s time
To take down the wall
To lower the defenses
Lest they become your prison

And allow this life
This fragile human experience
To bring you to your knees
And to find a way
Of being ok with that truth
Without the need to turn away.
