Walls

Muriau

 

Walls are like scars                                                                                               Some are easily seen

Some walls that are                                                                                              Invisible to you and me

Scars like walls almost                                                                                         Invisible even to the keen eyed

Some scars are like walls                                                                                     So easily seen

Then there are those walls                                                                                 Others like to build

To prevent themselves                                                                                        From seeing scars

From feeling

 

So we build high walls                                                                                        To protect ourselves

But protect us                                                                                                        From what exactly

Ourselves?                                                                                                              Everyone?

 

Them?

Us?

We?

 

Walls are like scars                                                                                               Some don’t  want to see

Walls that block                                                                                                     Out all feeling

Walls that stop                                                                                                      Us becoming involved

Walls that need                                                                                                     To come down

So that scars can heal                                                                                          And stop more harm

To ourselves.                                                                                                         To everyone.

Them

Us

We.

 

Some scars never heal                                                                                         While there are walls

That stops us                                                                                                         From healing.

 

Stop us from hearing                                                                             Ourselves!

Stop us from seeing                                                                               Ourselves!

 

Walls keep

Us

Apart
