TINY BABELS
(7/7/16)


we erect
so many towers
to our
glory

we stand
erect
in glory
of ourselves

yet
we wonder
why disaster
oft times
brings them
down

brings us
down

how many
times
must we
be reminded

that those
grandiose results
of little spiritual
consequence
are destined
for destruction

weep not

look beyond
the rubble

see that
which always
remains
