A Single Brick

Do you see the wall
the entirety of bricks
can you see the one…
tired on the floor.

All the strength and mortar
chipped away
crumbled edges
worn to the very clay.
Reddened – blemished
then cast out.
Not even a corner piece
nor a hidden ledge
no shadowed place
of society to hide.
A brick which stands alone
to bear the weight….
as the wall looks down upon.
They see the holes – as emptiness
yet this one brick…. sees the light
and then he feels the hardened steel
which penetrates….
A solitary soldier
he waits out in the field
a lonely life is his
a single brick
who stands against –
the wall.
