do you still remember where you keep the keys to your gates?

softly, softly
watch how you step, soften the edges of your walls
moss them over, use your own hands
not everything sharp is your enemy

do you still remember
where you keep the key
to your gates?

it can be hard to unlearn how to move beyond those high walls.

sometimes we forget where we have hidden the key to our gates.

not every sharp thing is your enemy.

it might take a lifetime to learn who to keep out, and who to let in.

i see you.
