I keep my guard up so I dont get hurt or made to look like a fool I have a hard time letting people in and not give them the chance to stab me in the back I put up an invisible wall between myself and anyone I come into contact with because it is my only defense From the outside I come off as cold rude and secretive but its the only way to protect myself I try aimlessly to keep that wall intact standing strong like the way I want to be perceived Every now and than someone wrecks the wall I worked so hard to build I begin to trust them while they take advantage blindly Once again I am deceived feeling as if I am two inches tall My stomach sinks and I feel that there is not a soul I can trustI begin to build the wall again making it stronger and not giving anyone a chance to wreck it This does not make me popular or even well known but I do it to get throughElementary school was my first encounter with how horrible people could be I would be mocked for the type of clothes I wore or my high pitched pre puberty voice At a young age peoples words can make me feel like you are nothing that you are a toy there for their amusement The worst part about was I though these people were my friends This continued year after year school after school After a while it get tiring being a human punching bag You grow and learn from your mistakes and become less trusting even if someone has the best intentions It becomes a lonely life but I would rather have resecpt for myself than to surround myself with these friendsI have missed out on friendships because of my wall I want to leave this person that Ive been for the past twelve
