The Wall of Time

that wall of time

over the years

it just gets higher

the great separator



that great divide

shuffling out the old

ushering in the new

breaking bridges along the way



conformity

that builder of walls

destroyer of bridges

ensuring, at best

only memories remain



bridges built across time

memoirs adsorb the unwanted

safely travelling back

allowing

old to become

…..

the new, new
