Stack & Restack

Stack and Restack

Regina Puckett

There’s never enough

Can never be too tough

Always seeking

Always speaking

No one hears

Your fears

No sees

Your unease

Walk or run, run

Your hard work – all undone

But put those building blocks back into place

Even as the time keepers smirk at your race

They wait for the tidy pyramid to stand again

And laugh when it’s knocked down by a friend

The world is an unkind place, but who’s counting?

The only person in charge of your life’s accounting

Is the man staring back from that damn old mirror.

So stack and restack those blocks – the end is nearer.
