The Bull and the Wall

Humanity as a whole, it can be said,
is insufferably stubborn
and like the bull it bares its horns
at any perceived threat
This bull cannot be ridden at all
lest you be bucked off
Nor can the bull be approached
lest you be gored through

Humanity is more than the bull though
as it is the Great Builder
whose walls are unseen and concrete
Keeping out the hearts of others
The impenetrable walls must be climbed
lest its barbs prick you
The enduring walls must be shaken
lest they crumble upon you

And yet humanity can release these chains
and find true freedom
Through the dissolution of its walls
it shall be open
Through the running of the bulls
it shall graze on verdant fields
When those heavy chains finally slip away
Humanity will know peace in being peace.
