The Fence said, “I am here to allow entry to no offender”.
But the Opposer said, “I am freedom of life, Liberty,
and doing my own thing. The Fence said
“I do not care. I am designed to be a barrier
Of all things.” Yet again,
The Opposer said, I am about togetherness
and love and a willingness
To dream; of what it would be like to be on the other
Side of that strong veneer you reveal Mr. Fence.
The Fence has no intention of allowing movement of
Body or expression.
The Opposer has a challenge;
merge upon the Fence
To force its invincibility; and make it consider the
Possibilities of allowing
The Opposer positive control over it.
The Opposer has no design
On destruction, only a desire
That Mr. Fence has never considered.
Love; togetherness; entry; freedom to live;
To speak; to control; and to open the gate of the Fence.
We all have a Fence within, but we are also the
Opposer…so we can change.
Are you the Fence, Or the Opposer?
