we built this water fountain with mortar

brick by brick

with bare hands

the water ebbed and flowed

as swiftly as we stepped aside

avoiding desire

so it crumbled

to space dust

drifting to another parallel universe

where we chose to keep building

and reap the benefits

of fresh water and companionship



here i stand, full of life

driven by resilience

& the willingness to fight

i didn’t think i’d make it this far

because thats what they lead me to believe

it’s a good thing

but i guess my subconscious had other ideas

but now it has turned everything over to my consciousness

i’m thankful
