Walls - Poem by Barry Middleton

some hide behind a vacant stare
some hide behind a smile

some hide by stating only facts
others hide by guile

some hide and never do disclose
the pain we often feel

that judgment of judgmental folk
can force us to conceal

we seek for one to raise our hope
and there reveal our soul

someone to trust our secrets to
when walls no longer hold

Topic(s) of this poem: isolation, support, trust
