Today, I’m building a fence.
I’m putting up my walls.
I’m lining up every board and stacking up every brick… Piling them high and wide.
I’m wrapping my arms around all that I love, and covering the mouth of all that I fear.
I’m tightening my grip on potential, and sharpening my words for battle.
I’m showing my teeth.
Defending my destiny with rose-colored fists, and fighting back against everyone and everything that tells me I can’t, or I won’t, or I shouldn’t…
I’m standing guard against all the voices that tarnish the Vision, and rising up against all the whispers that threaten the Gift.
I’m watching over myself.
Shielding my thoughts from temptation, and preserving my path with passion, and purpose, and perfectly timed uppercuts to the status quo.
I’m locking all I believe in a see-through safe, and building a fortress around the Light.
I will shelter my story.
I will protect my dream.
