Brick – Daily prompt – Monorhyme


For the longest time I have been focused on building myself up

But with mismatched bricks and shaky foundations it feels like I’m in a death trap

Now I’m gonna unbuild myself, slowly deconstruct

Until I’m left bare, rebuilding  with the bricks of the past, I will not lack


Those same bricks that have been caging me in

Will be used to develop thicker skin

Foundations made of faith and compassion

Where doubt and fear may be present but not overwhelming


Although the process may be bittersweet

Where losing my old self feels like  a win and a defeat

The ground I’ll walk on will feel solid and sure under my feet

Merging my past hurts with my future hopes like reinforced concrete
