Retaining Wall (hour 2)

I’m a simple man who’s easily hurt.

I been stepped on ridiculed treated like dirt.

I give all of me but it’s never enough, you all want more so I keep going as I huff and I puff.

I want to be respected, is that too much to ask?

Yet still im just a toilet to you that takes all your crap.

With my hand forced, now I will build a wall out of my own instinct inside my flesh and bones.

In it I will bury all the guilt pain and suffering, just try to throw stones.

Inpenitrable by anyone’s opinion, anyone’s hate, anyone’s words with hateful tones.

This retaining wall it is built solid like concrete and rebar, that reinforces it for this wall shall not come down.
