The Wall I Built

January 3, 2017

I broke a wall,
So I could see the sun


When I climbed to the top,

All I could see were clouds,

As the sun was blocked


So I looked at myself,

Staring deep into my hands


I built the wall again for something to do


As the wall was built,

The clouds cleared,

But the sun had moved behind me

I would not look at it, for in the wall,

I now saw a shadow


I punched it and only hurt myself

The wall broke

I asked myself,

What is the point of this?


Then, the sun answered,

As my shadow no longer consumed me


There is no point to building a wall if you are just going to make it fall


There is no point in having a sun if you hate your own shadow that comes


And so I stood up,

Gathered the rocks,

Built the wall again,

And waited until the next day the sun would arrive,

To tell me something new


When I saw my shadow,

I realized I was just waiting,

To talk to myself


Instead of talking I climbed the wall
I don’t know why I did this for I needed not do it

But when I got to the top,

I could see the sun and my shadow together


I was happy to see them
