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,
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,
'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.
