Falling Fort – Ray Mwihaki

Brick upon brick, cemented
Wth pain and regret,
Fortress of shame and reserve
Safe haven, sheltered from love
Never again to give way
Never again to break.
Promises and certainty to hold.

Then come the wind
Fondness planted his seeds
Like the magic beans was their growth
Theres a crack on the wall, Tears washed away by rain in torrents
Floods carried doubt and reserve
Forces too strong to hold,
BOOM!!
