Inevitable Grit

Updated on May 20, 2013

Concrete slabs
raised one atop the other
to towers of industry and work,
are a testament to man
and his capacity to persevere.
And while petty jabs
or missiles launched from afar
can knock them down,
... none are stronger than nature -
its winds
its waves
its human invention which,
like its two brothers, move steadfast
as the phoenix rising from the ashes,
so, too, is humanity's stone grit.
