Maybe… (Letter 5)

A crumbling brick wall

You can’t build a brick wall with bricks and packed sand
It’s got to be bricks and cement.
You can’t think for one second that it’ll be ok for you, just because it’s ok for the eccentric characters on TV.
You can’t think that it’ll all work out because your intentions are pure;
It doesn’t work that way.
Sometimes you’ll mess up so badly, you’ll hurt the people you love
And you won’t be able to make it right.
You’ve got to learn from these things.
Don’t make the same mistakes-
Try your best again and again and over and over until it’s finally enough.
Be what you are but not what you were.
We won’t know if it was worth it until just before we die
But we’ll never know if we don’t try.
So maybe we should,
Again and again
And over and over
Until we die,
Attempt to forge bonds as strong as steel
In a furnace of brick and packed sand
And a sprinkle of experience.
