(First things first, I apologise for my previous question which appeared to offend quite a few, it has duly been deleted)

To many I am the gallows,
The place that they will hang
And every time one is sentenced,
You drive a nail through my heart
And why you cut me out to try
and see through me,
In the end I am the one thing
That keeps the roof over your head

What am I?

    $\begingroup$ What was your previous question? $\endgroup$ Apr 5, 2016 at 17:50
  • $\begingroup$ @question_asker I've deleted it now but it mentioned a couple of mental diseases (not saying anything bad about them, literally just stating them) and people for some reason got offended $\endgroup$ Apr 5, 2016 at 18:01
  • $\begingroup$ Oh, I remember that one now. $\endgroup$ Apr 5, 2016 at 18:03

    $\begingroup$ I didn't mean for it to be offensive, surely merely stating something is okay? $\endgroup$ Apr 5, 2016 at 18:03

You are:

A Wall

To many I am the gallows,

The place that they will hang

And every time one is sentenced,

You drive a nail through my heart

Refers to pictures being hung, and placing a nail in the wall to hang them from.

And why you cut me out to try and see through me,

Refers to installing windows in a wall

In the end I am the one thing

That keeps the roof over your head

Walls support the roof.
