Collaboration for Peace – 42

Barriers

we build walls trying
to define our space
outline the boundaries of

what belongs to us
construct tangled barriers to
keep others at a distance

so no one will know us too well
we assume a prickly air
attempting to protect our hearts

alone inside our armor of safety
we long for the touch of another
the understanding of a neighbor

the love of a friend
yet we are afraid to reach out
take a risk

seek peace

  2. Trying to protect ourselves is something that sadly becomes instinctive after opening the heart and soul sharing who you are with someone who afterwards harms your feelings .
