Barriers

Barriers are meant to break
To be broken
They are meant to weaken
And for us to permeate
Its estranged nucleus
We are meant to encode
Its death
To pluck out the living cells
Of its structure
And build a door
Breathing
To let us through

We were meant
To see
These walls as difficult
And to scrape
The doubt of our skins
Against its rough stone surface
We were meant to complete
This slow climb
Bleeding
Dripping
Our anxious sweating bones
Until every joint weeps
Dry
