Hidden Walls

Author: Jin Wang Editor: Isabella

With such cold and merciless rigidity

Legions of troubled and empty souls

Heedlessly

Build these contentious walls

Coerced 

By so-called leaders

Meer dictators in disguise

To enrage and divide

As they pivot from Truth

With disinformation and lies

Spin the narrative

Then duck, run and hide

Irreverent they stand

On the world stage

Immoral men

With unscrupulous hands

To rule and bend

Everything and everyone 

They touch

Take us all for fools 

And blame the other side

To no end

And I try my best

To fathom and untangle this 

Negligent craft

Brewing in brine

But alas

My heart is far too soft

And my mind too wise

When darkness falls

Gently across these open plains of

Windswept grass

It takes nothing 

But a single breath to 

Lay my spirit bare

Fingers of the starlit night 

Reaching far and wide

Into the wild currents

Through time and space

Caressing the whispering air

And how easily I let these walls

Fall all the way

D

O

N

All the weight I’ve carried upon my shoulders

Day after day

The sentence of lock downs, isolation and burden

Dropped

Just like that

Like a soft and silken gown

Strewn across the cooling evening ground

And how I also abolish and erase

These adorned colored walls

Gilded in betrayal and disgrace

Fashioned with Fabrications 

That hold neither

Dignity or Worth

Pulled down into the

Gravity of 

Depravity and Sin

I surrender to this life I live

Awaken and Free 

Because I am not afraid of 

Light nor Love

And I beg the floodwaters to roll 

Like Raging

Oceans whipped by cyclonic storms

As I bend into the breaking of the stones

And my heart is 

S C R E A M I N G

Let them fall

No, I do not try to cage this eternal seeking of my soul…so

Let them fall

Let them fall 

I will always turn my face

Towards the sunlit warmth of 

Eternal Grace

Embracing my Faith 

Arms reaching 

Forever out

Into the sea of 

Bitter Truth

Though it may be better to arm these walls

In this hopeless and forlorn state of

Self-serving existence

I will always 

Let them 

F

A

L

L

I Live 

Breathless 

And 

Free 

In the Breaking

And 

Crumbling of Walls
