Walls

We saw them once in nature,
and adapted to life inside;
We bound ourselves to their solitude
within them we hide.

We build them in our hearts,
to protect us from emotions;
We painted them in black,
from chafing, lurid notions.

We build them in society,
and soon called them nations.
We build them as a path,
our lonely roads to salvation.

We build them all around us,
laid them brick by brick.
We took some down and put some up,
our magic bag of tricks.

These walls we’ve built to protect us,
some to keep us safe.
Some to lift us higher,
and turn ourselves to waifs.

Our walls keep us separated
and push us farther away.
What was meant to protect us,
has led our freedom stray.
