Lonely Roads and Barbed Wire Fences

M. Fennell


Lonely roads and barbed wire fences

Why do we put up defenses?

Guard what you keep inside your soul


Security we will feign

Rather be lonely than in pain

Afraid someone will steal heart and go


We’re all on this road

Yet each of us alone

If you see me please lower your defense


Sharing your soul takes some practice

But each other’s company must last us

This road must change before it ends


This scene demands drastic measures

Scaling barbed wire requires effort

I’ve been hurt more than I’d like to say


Blazing trails and removing fences

Our shared soul will protect us

Let this new road lead us where it may
