From Atop High Fences I Distanced - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I had been cautioned not to take steps,
Beyond set boundaries I kept no regrets to dismiss.
But those who warned were always behind me.
Trying to convince by the shouting out their fears,
From atop high fences I distanced.
Until their taunts disappeared.
And each time my eyes and ears were cleared,
After I removed with a refusing...
To be stopped by those obstacles.
