Without Borders

Sunday 20 August 2017

How do you conjure up a scenario:
no states, no nations,
only a vast ocean of humanity!
It may sound amazing - not easy
to comprehend; yet, look inward.
Blind self-love fascinates, but excludes,
blurring vision beyond borders;
a closed identity, its magnetic pull
gravitating, jams the wings of flight
to take off into the universe.
Try to see peaks from the foothills.
A huge wall of height stands,
blocking your searching eyesight;
from a distance they outline
a wondrous panorama on the horizon.
