Wow Michael this is the truth so well spoken I so agree. To me the world has not changed it is the people making it rather uncomfortable to the point do our children have a future and if yes how would the future look like. There only one race and that is the human race. Why can't we just get along.? We are killing7 eachother and for what. I could go on but I may get carried away. Take care and be blessed.
I really like the metaphor and how thoroughly you explored it....connecting construction terms to areas of life such as religion and poverty. From your poems and posts it is very clear you have a big heart Michael. Great write!
