Facades may crumble

in the face of time

Ravaged by a passage

that cannot be stopped

Yet some vestige remains

As the Earth reclaims

What was once her own

Pillars of our dreams

Can still be found

No matter how far

Erosion and decay

Have brought them down

We fight battles

We know we cannot win

Our own delusional windmills

We tilt against time

To create

Something that can last – Caroline A. Slee
