High Tower

You watched the ground break
Steel shard upward to the sky
Giving shape, creating form
Intellectual design
and environmentally sound
An art piece to the community surround
Of what can rise up of dust
Of what we can and what we must
You said the words to make it happen
You gave it vision, and breathed its life
You gave it all you got
But all at what cost
In all that you build
One sight you lost
And now beguiled with guilt
You could build your High Tower
but you never managed to build a meaningful connection
You had yourself, but you neglected the Power
She lead her life within herself
While you celebrated the success of your wealth
