• I have a wall you can not see,
    Because it's deep inside of me.
    It blocks my heart on every side
    And helps emotions there to hide.
    You can't reach in
    I can't reach out
    You wonder what it's all about.

    The wall I built that you can't see
    Results from insecurity.
    Each time my tender heart was hurt
    The scars within grew worse and worse.
    So stone by stone
    I built a wall
    That's now so thick
    It will not fall.

    Please understand that it's not you-
    Continue trying to break through.
    I want so much to show myself
    And love from you will really help
    So bit by bit
    Chipo at my wall
    Till stone by stone
    It starts to fall

    I know the process will be slow-
    It's never easy to let go
    Of hurts and failures long ingrained
    Upon one's heart from years of pain.
    I'm so afraid
    To let you in
    I know I might get hurt again.

    I try so hard to break the wall
    But seem to get no where at all.
    For stone upon each stone I've stacked
    And left between them not a crack.
    The only way
    To make it fall
    Is imperfections in the wall.

    I did the best I could to build
    A perfect wall
    But there are still
    A few small flaws
    Which are the key
    To breaking through the wall to me.
    Please use each flaw
    To cause a crack
    To knock a stone off of the stack.

    For just as stone by stone was laid
    With every hurt and every pain
    So stone by stone the wall will break
    As love replaces every ache.
    Please be the one
    Who cares enough
    To find the flaws
    No matter what.
