Mistrust

When do we throw away mistrust?
We have protection after protection
Claiming that we are only keeping
Ourselves safe and all we do is build
Walls higher and higher until we only
See the other through the words of
Rhetoric and not as a person, this 
Only fosters unforgiveness, hate, war
And no peace in sight because our
Eyes no longer see the way clearly
We just surrender to the invisible barrier
In front of us, if we want peace we must
Push the walls, we must question and
We must see the other as our sister,
Brother, mother, father as part of the 
Human family, Gods family
