Walls (Ex-Introvert's Story) - Poem by Lubinda Lubinda

Growing up as a shy & quiet person I've always wanted to live in tranquility so, I picked my spot in the corner of a little city where everyone lived isolated lives cocooned behind four walls! It was a quiet & lonely place but, despite the solitude I, nevertheless felt secure behind all the concrete neither did I feel the need to know personally the person who lived on the other side! I had built myself a fortress that kept me protected from the outside world and the only interaction I had with it was an occasional: 'hellos and goodbyes' and ironically I claimed to know everyone quasi-perfectly! It's not that I hated people It's just that I was scared of them but, one can only live this way for a little while because, sooner or later even a cocooned caterpillar must come out of it's cocoon and likewise, a man can't hide forever BECAUSE, NO MAN IS AN ISLAND!
