Walls will find us in this life
walls and fences and so many reasons
to give up,
It is up to us, and only us,
to climb them,
to cling to them like vines
and grow anyway.
Let the light shine through
for there are always cracks.
Grow, grow defiant against the walls
that tower around you
the fences that lock you in.
I passed this wall in Seattle's Pioneer Square one morning. I love how the vines escape the cage,
defy it's bleak surroundings, and cling vibrantly for life. They told me their story...my story.
