Every day to lift and nail the frame
finally sustain the central beam
house of dreams to shelter treasures
unite love, always working against
fear, impossible limit that forces one
awake, having come too far too fast
hubris has its cost, death is not ours
to tempt, nor time our own, lessons
of life come with patience in affliction
valiant conviction, as we, abyss descend
humbleness in terror of fire, final price of bliss.
