And there I saw dimming light
seeping eerily through vertical
and horizontal cracks in the wall
of my mind that was supposed to
be blocking away all the evil of my days
but someone or something kept gnawing at
the great wall that was build of massive masonry
reinforced with molten copper like the wall built
by Dhul Qarnain to shield the world from the
monstrosity of the diabolical Ya’jooj & Ma’jooj.
But unlike these sinister cannibals,
the thoughts and memories and emotional hell
crammed behind the wall could only harm me
if let loose.
If the wall crumbles,
there’s no coming back.
