The Wall

Every time I feel abandoned

Every time I feel small

Every time I feel broken

Another brick goes in The Wall

The Wall keeps getting higher

Each time I make a friend

Who stays close beside me

Just to leave me in the end

The Wall becomes my sanctuary

To hide my hurt and fear

And keep out any person

Who dares come too near

Perhaps, in the future

A savior will come my way

With the strength to shatter The Wall

And the courage to stay

But for now, I'll keep waiting

I'll keep adding bricks on

To my own infinite Wall

Of which I've grown so fond
