Brick by brick


The foundations for a home

The solid safety that wraps around a family


The excitement when you own those bricks

You dreamed of those bricks

You slaved away for those bricks



Hour after hour



But getting so much satisfaction from those bricks

Every life experience within those bricks


They are more than just bricks


you grow and learn

You evolve

You stack a legacy

Brick by brick.

    'brick by brick within each laboured breath of hopeful dreams,
    we all - strive to achieve our 'goals', praying - 'they' too deliver
    that salvation of self-worth and belonging,
    we ultimately spend our lives: aspiring to realise..'
    a wonderfully insightful depiction of those painstakingly gradual years, spent accumulating our meagre success' arduous journey of which only we are previewed to,
    while other's drive-by our sweat-forged 'legacy bricks', commenting on our 'lucky break'..
    an intriguing take and an engaging topic, accessibly worded
    thanks for sharing dear poet and for inspiring my little scribbled reply

      Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful comment. It really makes me feel confident in my poems. When at times I definitely doubt myself Xxx

      The building blocks of our character are within the bricks of your words today.
      How we build ourselves as we build a future for security and family.
      A well built piece of poetry too.
