hold back the river

Four walls and a yellow door

Cost an arm and a leg

Yet daily i drive by and gasp at the beauty

Of how human hands rebuild from the ground up

Every conceivable notion from launching space probes

To probing the heart

And minds

With concepts, quips and tools manufactured

All from the wellspring of the imagination

Nothing is impossible

We circumvent the globe by starlight

Calculate the odds without mathematical aid

Know the seasons by the weather

And stay true to our aims

We build skyscrapers

And diamond mines

A boring company, perhaps

Do not tempt fates

Nor taunt providence

We argue, fuss, whirr, and whine

Do not tell me that it is impossible

I will accept the challenge as a dare

I will show you the truth

Because everything reverses eventually

All things considered

Just take time
