Bricks

May 13, 2008
By Emily Kershner, Hamburg, PA

You lay one brick
I lay another brick
We’re building a wall
Unintentionally
Intentionally
The wall’s getting taller
The wall’s getting wider
It’s becoming harder and harder to see you
But I keep building
You keep building
Day after day
Brick after brick
The wall is growing
It’s out of control
I can’t stop it
You don’t stop it
I stand on tiptoes to catch a glimpse of you
So that I can memorize your face
Before the wall separates us
Forever
