Prayer a day 2019: Mauern

9. November 2019

Walls

They rise high, threatening, bone-crushing

Keeping in, keeping out.

Walls between countries.

Walls in heads.

Walls in hearts.

For your own protection, they say,

meaning:

Because we are not sure,

because we lack trust,

in you and in ourselves.

For your own protection, they say,

meaning:

Because we are afraid of

what we don‘t know

what looks different

what thinks and talks not like us.

For your own protection, they say,

meaning:

For OUR own protection,

so we don‘t have to think,

don‘t have to learn something new,

don‘t have to compete.

Tear down those walls!

But carefully, without violence.

Let them disappear stone by stone,

allowing peaks through holes into the wide world.

Build bridges of them,

creating connections,

so that one day

you and I

will be able to walk across a world without walls.
