The wall…

Wall

Some days there is this huge brick wall

Reinforced

Impenetrable

I want to scream

So loud

Make it crack

And I do

Silently

Inside my head

Nothing affects it

I stare blankly

Unsure

Should I give up?

Cry?

Get angry?

None of the above?

I sit down

And try

So very hard

To see it

Differently

I stare at it

‘why won’t you let me in?’ I ask it

The question tumbles out

‘Isn’t this a waste of your time?’ it answers back

‘I don’t know,’ my honesty bounces back from it, echoing loudly

‘what do you know?’

‘Well…I know that I really enjoyed writing’

‘And?’

‘and all of the creativity…’

‘and?’

‘And you’ve taken it all away from me..’

‘Me?’

‘You are the wall’

‘Am I?’

‘Aren’t you?’

‘What are you questioning?’

‘Well, I guess I’m questioning if you are the wall’

‘and’

‘and if you are the one who put it there’

‘and’

‘and……if maybe’

‘yes..’

‘’well, maybe’

‘go on’

‘Are you really a wall?’

But there is no response

I look at it

A tear silently rolls down my cheek

Etched in the wall

Three tiny words

“I was here”
