MAKE WALLS OF LOVE AND FLOWERS
 
If we must, must make walls:
then make walls of love and flowers,
not of hate and barbed wire.
of love,
and only more love
made up of blood
which gives us life
which is always red
no matter the color of your skin
or the language you speak
or the God you pray to.
Let there be windows and doors
in every wall
to welcome
clean air
fresh sunlight
new rain
ideas and art
poetry and music
and people.
because somewhere
an unborn child
is dreaming
of a future
where the wall of flowers
become a garden
which will become a forest
which will become the world
where there were no walls
and it is for that child,
for the children
who will be born afterwards
we must make walls
of love and flowers,
not hate and barbed wire.
