Brick by Brick

We lay these bricks down, one by one,
Beneath the scorching heat of midday,
Our sweats and tears flow like rivers,
We shall labor until the job is done,

We sing to the beat of a cracking whip,
As we go about our grueling work,
We work to build up a sprawling tower,
We pray that none of us fall or slip,

Hour after hour we labor and lament,
Our choice of occupation a mistake,
Had we know of the price for success,
We would have passed up the ascent,

Day by day, we strive for the impossible,
It is a struggle we just cannot win,
They ply us with incentive, to no avail,
Brick by brick, we toil on a false fable.

One thought on “Brick by Brick

  1. Bonsoir avec quelques petits orages
    L’amitié est un sentiment fort
    Il est beau de la découvrir
    Sur ton blog je peux lire tes poèmes , tes créations
    Les messages de tes amis (ies)
    C’est une appréciation forte
    On peux y trouver toutes sortes d’amis Français ou étrangers
    Quelle partage
    Sur nos blogs on vit un monde de paix
    Ce serait si beau que sur terre règne la paix règne


    Passe une belle soirée , prends soin de toi
    Bernard , bises
