Cracks in the mask

Some things,
there are,
that we are meant to see;
some walls,
meant to be broken through.

If we take our time,
tunnel neatly,
clean up after ourselves,
and stop at the first obstacle,

we're just clearing the way
for the universe
to take over the task and break us open.

Perhaps you had better pick up those tools again,
keep pushing through,
pick up the pace a bit,
lest an earthquake come along
to break that painted fortress of yours
wide open.
