It began with bricks, I guess,
built from the abuse above.
The big-smile baby knew no more,
no less. But she had no floor
or roof or wall, her
her ego nil.
Her cement did set quite early.
It took years to even see that.
Dreams of locks not working
haunt the trusting times.
The little girl got trapped
with owning, booing crap.
To escape takes more than hair.
Say ‘boo’ to the witch that’s there.

Inspired by today’s theme of masonry, mine is a Jung-inspired take on Rapunzel.
