These walls were built to last

Yet here I stand, ankle deep,

In the rubble and the dust.

 

An insidious attack by others

Welcomed into the keep,

But worried by how close walls smother.

 

By many a late conversation

Held before we sleep,

I fall prey to their persuasion.

 

Brick by lonely brick the walls fell

No longer a keep to keep,

Dear voices promise “all will be well”.

 

These walls were built to fall

So here I stand, ankle deep,

And I do not miss them at all.
