Barriers

We build barriers
With our words
Cast them high
Upon our tongues
And the silence
Between us
Coils like a river
How long
Can we hide
Behind these walls?

Should the walls
Crumble beneath us
Dare we converse?

Very very very true!!! We can but should not hide behind these walls. And, these walls are temporary.

I agree..why do we have to put up walls? Words are powerful and I like your reminder! Thanks Katina-

Them walls hold us back at times...but sometimes they crumble beyond our control :)

reflected upon.
