I fight so others won’t have to avoid life.

I fight so others won’t have to avoid life. I grew up avoiding life.  I didn’t allow people to get close. I avoided questions, changed the topic, and then slowly walked away, disappeared.  I listened to others but kept quiet about myself.  I wish I gave others the chance to be my friend.  I was a lousy friend because I didn’t share. I wasted a lot time, energy, trust, and goodwill between the age of 11 and 22, while avoiding life and building this little wall around me.  I fight so others won’t have to avoid living.
