Walls - Poem by Michael James Kennedy Findlay

Hope beaten down by a tall obstructing wall
A wall you cannot move or remove
Divided by religion or ranks in society
It is sad that even in this new age, many people who should meet don’t
Love is not given a chance
It is blocked and frowned upon
Forced to be stopped in its tracks
By a transparent wall which could be broken
The fear, rejection, loneliness
Society is cruel and unforgiving
A catch 22
Only one thing can decide
Your heart
Never lie to yours or deny true pleasure
