I put up my concrete walls

My barbed wire fences

My cage.

I prided myself on the thought

That despite everything,

I hid a softness under

A hard outer shell.

My defenses were

Immune to all sieges,

But I was blindsided

By an apology.

And for the first time,

In what feels like eternity,

I can breathe.

I am no longer trapped

In my self-built walls.

I can spread my tired wings

And fly free from my cage.

I can finally let go.

So while I could be frustrated

That an apology

Skirted past my walls,

Instead I find myself

Infinitely grateful.

From my soul

To yours,

Thank you.

Thank you.

Thank you.
