Written by Afolabi Femi


I built this walls

thick and strong

a fence no one can scale


Away they’ll go

once they hit the wall

for they are walls of brick

laced with some iron bars


I need my space

from all these noise

an escape from life itself

So I build…


Love had brought me to this

path and dumped me

In the quicksand of life

I sank


So I built this walls

not to keep you out

But walls to keep you in.


Locked, with me

Never to leave again…


Spread the love
