See my Walls

As humans, we are likened to self-contained builders that are trapped by walls of our own making.
We create our phenomenological reality based on culturally safe representative heuristics.
We establish walls that have personal value metaphysically but bears no value on our outer self-reality.
Dividing our world into sections, a defense mechanism for trying to understand it.
Despite the translucent and transparent matter of the wall, we endeavor to conceal our human parallels.
In a world inequitably segregated due to natural differences such as race and gender, we further the divide by constructing walls of social status: education, class, and prosperity.
