The Walls

We were not the ground shakers

People will never think that

We made a difference

Poverty hunger and homelessness

It fell into our laps

And we dismissed it

All that pressure and negativity

Came crashing down

The walls around us

Got higher and higher

Our spirits


The bad things in the world

Kept growing

Our numbers only

Fell apart

But the walls

Kept everything inside

We closed ourselves off

And just think

We will look back with regrets

Unless we make the change
