brick wall

i guess
i needed
something heavy
to push against
seems i can only learn
my lessons
the hard way
and somehow
i always find what i need
to teach me

yeah, well
there you were
brick wall
stoic monolith
waiting to be scaled
i encircled you
looked you up and down
assessed my chances
a little too high?
a little too wide?
is this youthful confidence
or just foolish pride?

i made my run for it
unstoppable force
meets immovable object
i slammed into you
splattered myself
against the inevitability of you
and bounced off
shattered into a million pieces
arrogant enough to think
i could defy
your personal laws of physics
