Behind the Wall

Behind the wall. Behind the wall—And Which wall is this? You may ask.

If you are unhappy, this Wall is not that wall.

This is the Wall that you wish you could hide behind. Not many people know of this wall, the wall of protection.

This Wall, the wall of fortification.

What protects you from being sad?

My answer: happiness

And now I ask you:

Which wall are you behind?

Behind the wall

Behind the wall they are happy.

The populace once said that one can’t know what goes on behind the walls.
This case, however, they do know.

Except you.
You are behind the wrong wall.
Desolation.

At many instances, pockets of individuals exit the door behind the wall. However,
This door can only be entered by a select amount. And you must be wondering. How do
I
Become one of those select few, and what are they doing behind
That wall?
What journey must I embark on in order to gain access to behind the wall?

And I will tell you this:

You are now entering the first stage of the journey, hold your breath.
Do not stop until I say so.

Imagine your life begins as an infant, but your mental ability is that of your age now. Picture Your nurturing mother, holding you dearly and safe. Remember how pleasantly her Scent entered your minute nostrils. Treasure those feelings, the next step will arrive soon.—You can feel the love, and you return it with a smile

—suddenly you are ripped away from her and violently tossed into the corner of the lavatory.
You wipe your bloody nose and moan with incredible pain, but I’m telling you now,
Draw on the treasure.

You explode with a new found vitality. And the story begins. (with Your new name, Adam)

Adam got up. In a futile hot pursuit, he found his legs and chased the man who pushed him down. He struggled to keep up with the offender, his disfigured physique preventing his momentum.

Adam had always been the odd-one out, the outcast, the marginal being. He was the boy you’d throw your insults at, the boy who was forlorn.
Sad—
But ignoring this known fact, he still chased his wrongdoer. Previously, Adam would have just sat there,
But now with the treasure,
His faint flame continued to glow.

Transformed into an eagle, Adam soars and scans for his prey.
Role reversal.

With a keen eye, he launches his attack on the preyed.
Moments later
Severed skin, litters the ground.

Adam stands there, absorbing Strength. His once stagnant smile, curls into a grin.

That grin, in turn, appears on your face. A grin of satisfaction, fulfilment and , for some,
Happiness.
Triumph.

And now I say to you:

This is where the story ends.

—But Only until Adam’s inner eagle has ignited in you,
Once your flame burns brightly,

And once you are one with them

You will no longer be behind the wall, but the wall behind you. You, in a flurry of
happiness.

— (Breathe)
