Walls Of Division

Responding self-righteously,
To what is perceived to be negativity...
While incapable to face facts.
Or refuse them to believe...
Is a destructive unproductive position to take,
Against a truth revealed and delivered to be received.

And for those who continue to oppose with defense,
Much pain is felt...
From the walls of division to fence themselves in.
With a doing to convince...
Building walls and fences for them makes sense.
Even though progress is stalled behind those walls.
Serving up a stalling of conflicts and nonsense.

'Wouldn't it be more practical not to build walls?
Or even walk around them.
And not beat your heads up against them at all?
Is it that important to you to appear victorious?
Wouldn't it be more cost effective,
If everyone started to use common sense.'

~We want it proven to our children,
Giving up is no badge of honor to flaunt.
And fearing the comments of opposition,
We do not wish this for our children to want.
We will not give up the struggle,
Nor turn our backs on the fight.~

'But...
Aren't you the ones building these walls of division?
And from where I see it to be viewed,
You are the ones with the dimming of 'lights'.
someone needs to replace the fuse.'

~We do what we must do.
With a doing done that shouldn't matter to you.~

'Not to build walls of division at all,
Would increase everyone's interest...
To provide realized purposeful benefits.'

~But what about our rights to be entitled?
No more would they be seen with envy and jealousy.~

~I hate to be the one to tell you this,
But...
No one who inflicts their own pain,
To do without proving there is a sharing of gains...
Is not one to be envied.
Sympathized? Perhaps. Envied? No.~

Walls of division to envision...
Escalates the advocating of one's hate.
Walls of division to envision...
Only perpetrates a mental illness to bait.
Although easier it is to just communicate.

Walls of division to envision...
May be built to maintain one's own pain.
Walls of division to envision...
May be built to isolate but what is the gain.
Walls of division to envision...
Keeps minds sick when their heads hit bricks.
Walls of division to envision...
Escalates the advocating of one's hate.
Walls of division to envision...
Keeps minds sick when their heads hit bricks.
Walls of division to envision...
May be built to maintain one's own pain.
Walls of division to envision...
Keeps minds sick when their heads hit bricks.
Walls of division to envision...
Keeps minds sick when their heads hit bricks.
Walls of division to envision...
May be built to maintain one's own pain.
And keeps minds sick when their heads hit bricks.
