This Tower

This tower you’ve built around me.
To lock me up behind walls of stone.
Keeping my heart from being free.

This Tower Comprised of solid bricks,
formed from your;
assumptions,
judgements and,
interpretations.

That place me high atop this prison
that surrounds me.
I have no illusions,
that many times,

it was I;
that stood idly by
handing you those very rocks

that have became my prison.

~Mark Schutter ©2015

Aren’t we all guilty at some point of creating our own or allowing others to create prisons around us; as we scream from the top of the tower about the injustice of it all.  Yet. sometimes there is no justice only mercy; both for others and ourselves. ~M
