From Ashes

Someone will build from this formless ash
Neither knowing nor caring it once were a palace
They will build their own construction
Youthful ambition looking narrowly forward
Believing they have invented the block.
.
They won’t know how we burned it down
How we tested it’s foundation with questions
Ravaging our bounties like they were limitless
Believing that we invented love and beauty
Beleving that we were stone not failing flesh
