to rebuild

dust, blood, sweat

cries for help rise into the air

progress goes up in smoke

as a city falls to its knees in defeat

“never again” whisper the survivors

yet history rewrites itself a second, third, fourth time

and on and on

because it is so much easier to destroy

than to rebuild

Rebuild
