Brick Wall


I ran alongside a brick wall,
That had no beginning and had no end.
I ran panting.
My running turned into a crawl.

I couldn't understand,
Who would make such a thing.
But an answer in my thoughts,
Did ring.

But never mind,
I still ran and ran.
I ran along this wall,
On beaches and sand.

This wall had me running,
Through tropical jungles,
And out of them,
Where this wall and I finally,
Mingled.

'Thank-you long wall,
To show me the way,
Through the halls of this world,
Through the night and the day,
Letting me run alongside you.

    Perhaps you could bridge the wall and cross over to the other side. I bet you would find a bay, a beach
    and a reason to stop running. (Report) Reply
