Another Brick on my Wall

Forget the mortar, just stack bricks high

so that I, far beneath them, lie

within the dust and within the dark

no light to grace this merry lark

for there are no smiles, not even tears

as I build the bricks from all my years

and make the mound so that none can see

this bitter wretch I've come to be

I'll be nothing but a pillar, standing tall

to be broken down when they cause me to fall

but keep on building up my mound

for when more pain returns, I'll be nowhere to be found

because I'll be hiding within this tomb

awaiting my impending doom

just another brick on my ever growing wall

wishing it would end, longing for it all.
