Too late? Maybe not… #WednesdayVerses

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.

I’m also linking up with Open Link Night at dVerse. Sharing there after a while. But the poets still seem familiar.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
