Wire

I hadn’t realized
How much
Of my life
Was lived out
In a cage

Enclosed
Fenced in
By wire

I never knew
There were hard boundaries

Never thought to explore

Didn’t cross my mind

Until I got close to the edge
 
Approached the boundary
And was met with glares

Touched the fence
And got zapped

Felt the pain
Of being
Judged as weak
Judged as unholy
Just for going near

It hurts
Getting near the edge

It is torture
Passing through the boundaries

Passing through with scars

Passing through
Without the approval
Or respect
Of anyone
But myself

I wonder why
We are 
So hard
On those
Whose journeys
Lead them elsewhere
When elsewhere
Is closer
To God
