The wall you build sometimes

The wall you build sometimes

to keep people away

to not feel anything.

I stand on the other side

wondering if it is just for me?

I wait for it to disappear

but it only gets taller.

I wait there

with sweat and tears as my companion,

they nurture my soul like water does to the roots of a tree

and I wait with a hope that one day

I’ll grow taller than your wall.
