Building Walls - Poem by Angelica Duardo

Building walls is what we’re best at
Building them so high
Up beyond our heads

Concrete walls claim to protect them
But they take away
Everything we crave

We cross the wall to build more walls
Solid lines that keep
Us outside the northern lands

They try to make us turn around
But we can’t be stop
Our dreams go way beyond

This life we live in misery
Love nurtures our life
But can’t buy bread for our kids

So we keep on building walls
Walls that’ll make their dreams
Much harder to achieve

It’s the price we have to pay
So we can give our kids
A better life than ours

Building walls is what we do
We get paid to keep them safe from us
Cause we are so dangerous
They seem to have everything we want

Walls so high
So high
So long and wide

Walls that reach
The heavens and beyond

Walls so high
So high
So long and wide

Walls that keep us
Outside from their land
