WALL OF HATE

This poem delves into the metaphorical concept of a “wall of hate,” representing the invisible barriers created by negative emotions, prejudices, and misunderstandings among individuals. It’s not constructed from physical materials but from intangible elements like harsh words, scorn, and mistrust, which serve to divide people and inhibit the flow of empathy and understanding. The poem emphasizes that this wall, although not visible, is profoundly impactful, capable of isolating hearts and stifling love.

The narrative arc of the poem suggests a journey from recognition to resolution, highlighting the destructive nature of hate and the potential for human effort to dismantle these barriers through acts of kindness, listening, and mutual respect. It advocates for love and understanding as the tools to deconstruct this wall, promoting a message of unity and the power of collective action to overcome division.

This piece serves as both a reflection on the nature of hate and a call to action, urging readers to actively engage in breaking down the walls that hate builds, underscoring the belief in the transformative power of love to heal and unite.

In the shadow of a towering wall,
Stands a barrier, not tall, but small,
A wall of hate, not built with stone,
But with harsh words, cold and alone.
It casts a shadow, dark and deep,
Where love’s light cannot creep.
Built brick by brick with scornful sneers,
Cemented with misunderstandings and fears.
No mortar here, but mistrust instead,
Lies and rumors, widely spread.
A wall that divides heart from heart,
Tearing human souls apart.
It splits the land, it cuts the sky, 
Under its watch, birds cease to fly.
A barrier to dreams and hope
Leaving countless souls to grope.
Not seen by eyes, but felt in the chest,
This wall of hate, where love can't rest.
It's not the bricks that need to fall,
But the hatred that built this invisible wall.
For every wall that hate erects,
Love's light, in time, reflects.
In each kind word, a brick removed,
In every embrace, hate disproved.
So let us reach across this hidden divide,
And build a bridge, side by side.
For only when we tear these walls away,
Can love rebuild, and light the day.
