In Berlin

Sometimes
we are in
Berlin.
The Wall
runs through my den.
An oppressive force
needs only
obfuscation
ommittance
and silence…
put those together
and it’s the same as
bricks.
Hemmed in
all you can do
is try to
not act
as the one’s who
have you
caught
act.

When someone
who you remember
well,
forgets that you exist…
that’s the wall,
welcome to Berlin.

Dehumanization
is what those who have lost
their humanity
do
to challenge yours…
does it still exist,
when those you care for
don’t appear to care if you do…
exist?

That shadow
makes it hard to read
from the book
of what you’ve done well.
That shadow
never falters
until…
heck, it never falters.
The way others can’t love you
is always
going
to be there.
The Berlin Wall
fell,
but some things won’t.
And what will you do
with your one life
when they forgot
how to care
about it?

You have to do
the loneliest thing.
You have to care about it
like no one else will…
