Barriers

Towers,
High as the clouds,
Walls shear,
No footholds,
No ledges.

Walls,
That stand before the tower,
Made of thick mortar,
Unbreakable,
Unmoveable.

Masks,
As safe as any wall,
With holes to barely breath,
And of course to see,
Colourful in confusion.

Veils,
Sheer, yet they shroud,
Block with delicate haze,
A multicoloured lie,
Meant to be harmless.

These things,
These armours,
These tools for the meek,
We use them,
We build them,
Then stand at the peak.
