Walls and Fences


Isolate; segregate,
Seal; close,

Some people build fences 
To keep people out…
While other people build fences 
To keep people in,
Each wanting to hold on to all that he can.

Guarding; protecting;
Or maybe preventing control; access or escape.

Some use wood or wire,
Some railings or concrete,
Some people use attitude or prefer silence,
All the while seeking forgiveness and peace.

Racism; Fanaticism; are
Barriers separating us from friends and families.

Looking through the cracks,
We see only the branches,
Step aside a little, the trees are beautiful too,
Radiating from the heartfelt warmth within.

Times are changing,
No time to play dead.

Bring down those fences, take down those walls,
And walk wherever you choose,
Stroll on through; Fenceless.
It’s a good way to begin again.
