Boundary Crossing

Are your boundaries defined?

Do you know where you stand?

Does life move in freedom and safety,

Your abode within your own land?


Have you visits across

Within another’s own bounds?

Invited in freely,

To not intrude on their ground?


Is your stay temporary?

Not a welcome outstayed?

Returning home to your space,

Or roaming day after day?


Do your gates have a lock?

Or are they open wide?

Are visits in, by inviting,

Or trampling over your line?


Would you share of your place,

With one who wants to be asked?

Have you locks to exclude

The one who’d like to push past?


When we keep not within boundaries

For protection and rest

We overwhelm or are smothered

Not seeking mine, or your best
