The Wall

“Stab the body and it heals, but injure the heart and the wound lasts a lifetime.”
― Mineko Iwasaki

I’m pushing and shoving
hoping it would fall
it should crumble any moment
I have to weaken its resolve
it cannot surround me anymore
it cannot fight me out long
I’m done being pushed into a corner
waiting for a miracle to happen 
after all
I have loosened its foundation
no more bricks can be laid on it
there are cracks 
begin to appear everywhere
now it can never intimidate me
it reeks of the smell of misogyny
it has been standing there for ages
now it has to go
let me be free
of all its aches and pain 
and general bondage
I’m pushing and shoving
too hard to let this wall fall
too bad that I don’t realize
they are building one 
behind my back
after all.
