Wall, Wall, Wall! - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen
Who can climb the wall?
Who said so that by building a wall
others are disabled
from climbing at all?
Wall, wall, wall!
It could be a wall
of strongest fiber or metal
It could be made of finest stones
So high and impregnable
with electric horrors and thorns.
But the human will on its
long journey to freedom
cannot be hindered
or imprisoned by man-made walls.
