Poem - Without Boundaries

“Without Boundaries” is one of my social justice poems. Fences may make for good neighbors, but they suck when a person is seeking companionship outside of the designated parking areas.


Without Boundaries

Through this life there runs a fence
right and left, directions set
boundary meant to draw the line
making simple the complex
there is a sign placed for all to see
put there by the authorities
led by writ of holy books
or by the pride of their small world

“by order of high authority
placed in our hands by deity
none shall cross from right to left
find their pleasure without our say

find your passion in polarity
never cross back to similarity
to each there own is just fine
as long as that one is opposite

know that there are only two settings
one to plug with full authority
another to receive with conformity
hardwired from birth to just conceive

in closing know that your loved
from the shrines from which this came
please obey for our comfort’s sake
lest we embrace our unconsciousness”

this is the challenge put to souls
that seek a way to move between
find their fury with their like kind
or with those that blur the lines
when the fence is in the mind
not written down by hand of man
love will find it’s resting place
roaming free without boundaries.
