The brick wall


Build a brick wall
strong and sturdy
to home your love
  and not your ego...

Build a brick wall
brilliant and majestic
to carry your glory
  and not your fright... 

Build a brick wall
rough and stubborn
to frustrate savage
  and not kindness...

Build a brick wall
neat and painted
in your abode
  and not in hearts...

Build a brick wall
with disposition true
and learn to 
  move through...

  1. I like the "brick wall" analogies in this poem -- especially the lines "to carry your glory and not your fright." Well done!

  2. I love the idea of the wall, used to home love, rather than ego. Excellent thoughts....
