Walls

Walls—barriers forourselvesand the outside world.Their allegianceresides with us—within us.Timechallengesby way of neglect,loss;cracked piecestossed into afusion sea.Graffiti soulstaresback—numbed and tortured bydeath.Gouged,missing parts,yet still leftstanding.We kick away thebroken pieces,apply patchesuntil thewrecking ballof timetakes theentire wall down. Linking life and poetry,Denise
