THE WALL

No one is certain who
painted the words on the wall.
No one knew when the painting occurred,
someone noticed the words
one morning and told others,
and the word spread through town.
People stopped to look at the words,
but few understood what they meant.
Soon there were pictures drawn
around the words, familiar faces,
and people would stop, add words
until the wall was a mural
that could not be forgotten,
only ignored by those
who simply wouldn’t understand.

One thought on “THE WALL

  1. I find Street Art incredible, especially around the East End of London. Some of the art is politically poignant and others show exceptional skill and it only lasts a couple of weeks. Trips to London to view it are like visiting a new art gallery every month!
