The changes were real
Some of your people moved far, far away
You were to be reunited sooner then later
Months later your names were called
Yet, you were not freed to travel
Lies had been told to you
You were young and therefore believed
Sooner turned into later
A huge brick wall was erected
Very, very tall was the wall
Stretching beyond your comprehension
A barrier, between you and those you wanted to see so badly
Later turned into never
You seemed to disappear into oblivion
Many more years pass into history
Still, the wall persists
Oh, you thought about climbing the dreadful wall
They told you that you could not
You listened and trusted this was true
Decades later you had the strength
Made it all the way to the wall’s end…
The wall was paper thin
It could be pushed over with one hand
The people you wanted to see were on the other side
One good push and you would be reunited!
Still, the wall stood firm
You could not defeat the wall
Better to stay put and remain so angry
After all, if the wall came down..
Another sad reality revealed itself..
All of this time
The wall was
In your mind.
So very, very sad
When the wall went up…
You were so very young.
