who built
these walls
of expectation
that confine us
a reasonable
to life
are they crafted
by our own beliefs
ancient structures
left behind
as an inheritance
from some

  1. I have often wondered about this too. More so how to loosen the chains of “normality”.
    Lovely write,


  2. Love the intent look in that hawk eye’s, although I expect he’s concentrating on something other than the walls that confine humans “to / a reasonable / approach / to life”… – that’s how closely we should examine our belief structures, inherited or however else we came by them.

  3. Charles–your poem reminded me of this:

    “They will rebuild the ancient ruins
    and restore the places long devasted;
    they will renew the ruined cities
    that have been devastated for generations.”
    Isaiah 61:4


  4. yep – who built them..? seems like some of them have been there forever and it’s not that easy to tear them down…i tremendously enjoy your hawk chronicles…probably telling you for the tenth time…
