The Berlin Wall was a Symbol, a Symbol of an unworkable System economic decline surveillance and oppression totalitarianism. its rise and fall represents an important Event .
It was Germany’s call
To separate on account of political fear
For the East’s morph into communism was near
But the West remained capitalist and strong
Of course it wouldn’t be long
Until desire crept in
To cross the wall from East to West Berlin
Many would die
Others would strive
Trying to make it through
What would you do?
Risk your life for the chance of better living conditions
Or stay where you are regardless of the government’s poor decisions
Not everyone was against communist rule though
Those people liked the East better you know
It was tough to say which government would prevail
But it was clear that reunification would be necessary for Germany to not fail
Now down came the wall
Barbed wire and all
Finally the time had come for the Berlin Wall to fall

Some people, however, did not mind living under communist rule so they did not face this decision. By ending the poem with the fall of the wall it symbolizes the fall of communism and reunification.
