We all are prisoners

We all are prisoners
Engulfed within this tall walls
The inmates to us are friends and foes
Freedom to us, a foreign language
You are enslaved
By your duty to keep me within the walls
Even while I slumber
Elusive, sleep becomes to you
Though in different quarters
We share the same mansion
In this homely prison
Only your fearsome difference
Defines your category
But with assertion of no contempt
We all are prisoners
