The Wall - Poem by Paul Marshall

From the soul hatred did flow
My rage was allowed to show

Where love should have been
Instead there was much sin

A gift from mother earth
Not death but a rebirth

Stone by Stone
A wall was grown

Hiding the real me inside
Keeping everyone else outside

Hatred on the decline
Rage kept in line

I feel contrite
Must make it right

Happiness not allowed
Regret is what I vowed

The dragon claws at the wall
While the eagle keeps it tall
