Walls and Boundaries

Walls and Boundaries
We think we build walls
Because we are human
But all living things
Build walls

And so we believe ourselves conscious
When every pattern we create
Has already been created
In our unconscious

I think I erect boundaries
To protect myself from what’s not me
But my boundaries
Enclose me

And so I define myself
Not by what is me
But by what is not me
Leaving no other possibility
