The Wall

Sitting on a Wall
Waiting while fools rush by,
Worn down heels, trodden on
Then thrown away, to be left 
Sitting on a Wall.
Wondering why I was born to be
So I could see no rhyme, no reason,
For me to be
Sitting on a Wall.
Dreaming of a life with you
At the centre of a galactic whirlpool
Of infinite life and depth
The stars rush round me and I’m left
Sitting on a Wall

    This is an interesting poem and I like the essence of the message. While sitting on the wall, don't be like Humpty Dumpty and take a fall. May be you could sit in a chair. Welcome to Poetry Soup and keep writing. Great job! Joseph
