the builder

the builder

he only chose the finest materials

examined each brick meticulously

understood their faults

and how even the smallest piece could be put to good use

he always started in the same manner

from the bottom up

never built too high

and only placed one brick at a time

the collapsed piles behind him were reminders of overzealous attempts of reaching too high

when his feet were meant to be earthed

barefoot to feel the grass


and even the gravel that taught him where to step

and so he began again

from rock bottom

not reaching for the stars

but the potential was still there

i have been here before

he said

and i will be here again

he said
