Walls And Fences


Walls and fences
All around
Creating boundaries
Both inside and out

Every word spoken
Just adds on
Building this wall
That cannot be undone

Pause and reflect
On the cost one bears
To put this wall up
That isn't even there

Its about time
That we realize
These walls and fences
Are just malice

Not far behind
Lived on the plains
Where walls and fences
Were nowhere to be seen

Oh what I would give
To go back to them days
Where soul, heart and body
Were all one and at peace...

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
