I’m going to build a wall. I don’t even want to look at you.</i>
<i>You probably were talking about me with your other friends.</i>
<i>You can keep your stupid, ugly friends!</i>
<i>Hey…what do think you’re doing? That’s a stupid looking wall.
Well, mine is going to be bigger and taller than yours.</i>
<i>What are you using anyway? Your wall looks shimmery and shiny. Those are dumb looking bricks. Do you want one of mine? They are hard and strong and with sharp corners.</i>
<i>Did that feel good? Well, that’s how I felt. Why don’t you say anything, instead of kneeling among those silly things and crying? Don’t you care that I’m mad at you?</i>
<i>Hey…yours is leaning. Get away from my wall. Go away! Leave me alone!</i>
<i>Hey…my brick bounced off your wall, didn’t even make a dent. I’ll show you; I’m going to build mine to the sky, so I never have to talk to you ever again!</i>
Slap, Thunk, Slap, Thunk
<i>How’d you get above me? Is SomeOne helping you? Hey…your wall is tipping over on me!</i>
Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop
<i>Your bubbly bricks are popping on mine. They’re dissolving my wall! What kind of powerful solution is in those bubbles?</i>
<i>Hmmmm…this one has some words on it:</i> I AM SORRY
<i>Hmph! What’s this one say?</i> SMILE, I LOVE YOU
YOU ARE MY FRIEND
REMEMBER WHEN WE MADE LICORICE JELLYBEAN COOKIES?
I MISS YOU
WILL YOU COME OVER FOR A GAME OF SCRABBLE?
<i>There’s not much left of my wall. Yours has bent right over it and bridged the gap.
I miss you, too. I’ll be over soon…on the new pathway between us.</i>
