Up Against The Wall - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes
Well, my fine young friend,
I see you are up against
Are you afraid?
'Well, no, not exactly.'
Well then, get on with it!
'But two hearts will be broken! '
Well, my young friend, may I remind you,
You are up against the wall...
One of you will simply have to get over it!
'May I climb the wall, sir?
'May I climb the wall?
No, there is no escape there!
'But if I surrender sir, if I give in...
The consequences could be devastating! '
It's called life my fine young friend,
It's called life!
Perhaps I'll just walk away.'
Don't you mean run away my friend?
'Well, Sir, remember, I am
Up against the wall! '
'Love abandoned me here and I am alone and lost,
Up against this wall of despair! '
