This Wall

This wall is steadfast

keeping time at bay,

holding me in this place

I call "today".

It allots me the choice to... 

              stare through the cracks in its mortar,

              to understand where my feet are planted,

              or turn to study what has been

                            but could not last.

No matter my decision,
the wall remains, uncompromising, 
steadfast
in its glory to shield me from 
what I might become.
                               -Nichelle Lei
