what borders have we created?
do ones of steel cross over somehow
into ones that constrain even love?
as days pass, will hearts be alone
changing slowly, surely into stone?
will words spew with edges steep
lead to memories hardest to keep?
and will light fade to dark of days
where are we headed these ways?
perhaps it isn’t too late to change;
can a heart, still filled with hopes,
share some joy, show the ropes,
start again, take a few steps back,
and take the not so beaten track,
maybe if we see we’re the same,
we’ll be kind, and stop to blame.
and perhaps, if or when we do,
not a border will remain so true.
Wishing all of you a very Happy and Prosperous New Year 2020. Welcome to #WednesdayVerses! Reema and I offer you this prompt each Wednesday to inspire you to write a poem. If it does, do write it as a post on your blog and come link up with us. The linky is open from now till next Tuesday night! Please add your post to the link only if it is a post written for #WednesdayVerses.
The prompt for 8th January to 13th January is the photo above. You can find it here as well.
