Everything Breaks

Everything Breaks

Some small and fragile works

Fall victim to strong hands

That violate their rest.

They snap!

And fall in worthless pieces

As they shatter to the ground.

Other common and cheap things

Die quickly from design

That insures they will not last.

They crumble.

And rest in cans of trash

As they await the refuse man.

The strongly formed creations

Pass slowly in good use

That constant strain demands.

They expire.

And lie in honored rest,

As they rust or fade away.

Great wonders of natural design

Cease not before the eyes

That constantly stare in awe.

They disappear.

And satisfy a God

As He changes all born in time.
