The world has changed

since I was small.

We’ve lost our way

and built a wall

so high we cannot

scale its’ height,

and all we seem

to do is fight.

We’ve lost respect

and placed the blame

on those we hate.

They’re not the same.

We cannot seem

to compromise,

and we hurt others

with our lies.

When we erase


we close a door

and fail to see,

that underneath

the skin we wear,

there is much more

that we could share.

We have the choice

to now decide:

to close the door,

or open wide,

and overlook

our differences

and come inside.
