When Morning Wakes


When Morning Wakes by Maria Fokas

Why do people build walls was the question that kept me up till the early hours of the morning. I looked at pictures, quotes, and listened to music trying to figure out what makes us all come together; the common element which makes it all work. If we can have that then we won’t have the need to build them. . . the impact of fear and love will build and bring them down – so where’s the twist? I can’t build walls when I’m tired and I can’t bring them down either but in a world where a tear can roll down one’s cheek when they cannot answer the question “What is missing in your life?”, because then they would have to do something about it;  building walls is a comforting idea.

So where do we stand? You are more beautiful than you think is a truth but it is the irrational thought in our head we believe to be true that determines our choices. . . so maybe it is trust, the fact that we trust the negative rather than leaning towards the benefit of the doubt, which inclines us to build those walls but we already knew that, didn’t we?

I stayed up till the early hours of the morning to confirm what we already knew and still it makes no difference what I think. Automatic thinking is a powerful voice and most persuasive but usually false so why do we listen to the negativity running around in our head? Maybe because it’s familiar to us. . . maybe we are not comfortable with change so anything that threatens our familiarity we shut off, or maybe it’s now too early in the morning for reliable answers. I’ll figure it out tomorrow, which is actually here right now, so good morning to you, time for bed and I hope you figured out what I could not today.
