go out and play

project day 2:

my safety exists inside these walls.
i come out to join you inside yours,
but dusk calls me in each night,
inside my haven-- free of harm, free of fear.

but you invite me out to see the stars.
offering your hand, your smile, your heart,
i fear these walls can no longer keep me in.
and what will happen if i break free?

like the open desert, i am exposed.
no safety, no shelter.
but it's a freedom i can no longer resist.
these walls are coming down...and i can see the stars.
my hope exists outside these walls.
