In Defense of Letting It Be

those fences you erect
the boundaries you enforce
meant to stand for order,
a show of discipline

what you have done, instead
is block the sunlight,
created a byway for the rains,
kept the space barricaded

what you wanted (really) was your agenda
instead of being flexible and open,
you will cultivate closed and narrow
instead of letting it be with endless possibilities
