Beyond The Glass

Beyond The Glass

May 2016

 

Building defenses

Systems and components

Of protection and strength

A shield of armor

Impenetrable and strong

Agile and resistant

To incompetence and dust

 

Building bridges

To the outside world

Be it near or far

In mind, on paper

Looking through the glass

Seeking movement

And the sky

 

Building courage

From sand and sun

Calculating risk in minutes and years

Holding the Hands of time

Future in sight

Clearly blurred

But there nonetheless

 

Building dreams

Of color and hope

Of meaning and purpose

Beyond concrete and glass

And this cold white desk

A journey awaits

Patient and free

 

Building a future

Drawing it near

Through seasons of fog

And hesitation and doubt

Spring will prevail

As the journey continues

Into lands yet uncharted

 

Building a world

With passion and heart

Leaving the shallow shores

For deeper blue

Beyond the black horizon

To be masters

Of our fate
