THE CAPSTONE–a poem

THE CAPSTONE
BEHOLD
WORDS ARE CHANGED
THE TOWER OF BABEL STANDS

.

They did not know:

The allegory is the sky
The tower scrapes the clouds
The time doesn’t bend around it
The spaces will not be perforated
The words were true and held fast
The mind is what is attacked inside
The thoughts are what turn language
.
The allegories are eternal when infinite
The tower is the wall in-between hearts
The words are held behind these so cast
The change is a subtle but a solid stone
The one people become their strangers
The doubt becomes their soul overlord
The golden calf is Almighty insecurity
.
They did not know: Bless Forgiveness
.
Once changed a tongue need not twist
Once inside, outside is never touchable
Once what is false is said to be only true
Once each truth cannot be viewed by talk
Once a tower keeps cares walkway hidden
Once allegory’s are seen as what once was
Once what I say is just what it is, because
.
Once explanations are then needed to see
Once invitations are required to truly be
Once lies become the most likely reality
Once time and space are rendered unfree
Once words are twisted into impassibility
Once hope is not cause for any compatibility
Once Babel makes one others words, insanity
