Day 154 - Bending Bricks

I wish our walls could bend at ease
That brick by brick they were built for flexibility
But not all can be as I please
Day by day that becomes easier and easier to see
The arch made there is a compromise
One that the wall made for the land
But bricks and dirt have no knowing eyes
And take much less to understand
Walls are sturdier than I can be day after day
Because I was not made to weather rain
I was made to hear and search for the sweet things to say
And learn to muster paths away from pain
We cannot bend as the walls do
We can only search for what is true
