Brick by Brick

By: Nathan Hunnicutt

Bricks laid down by masons who lived before my time.

Luscious lawns of green grass planted long ago.

Giants tower over me, naked, missing their leaves.

Paths intertwine at every step,

giving way to old acquaintances and new friends.

Waves of students flood the bricks and recede from them with the passing of each hour.

 

Some walk, some cruise, and others snooze,

determining the shape their own brick path –

Brick by brick,

Brick by brick,

Brick by brick,

Then why do I not fit.
