I hate to miss a day, but I have hit a bit of a wall.
Hope to get back to this prompt, bust through the wall.
To shelter all our hopes and dreams we build a wall,
but it becomes a barrier inside a thicker wall –
a veil that promotes misunderstanding, that distances
us from our ability to break through a wall –
through various measures they keep us apart,
they turn our feeling to blindness, an unscalable wall –
a veil that hides our faces from each other’s
and separates our lives with a rising wall –
time and distance and shielding separate us
and we attempt to overcome by writing on the wall –
But I write too fast and sit “send” too soon
increasing the height and thickness of the wall –
ultimately I wear a mask to hide my self
and you wear a veil, hijab, and hide behind a wall.
