    I want to build

    Desperately wanted to build as a youth
    Mother said I should be an architect
    I always dreamed of having a tree house
    But I feared I would fall and break my neck

    Now I dream of a Pyramid
    I would like to construct one
    That’s my dream of today
    Therefore I must travel to Egyptus,
    And see how the job is done

    My palm hands must touch the generative stones
    Then I shall close my eyes in deep sleep
    And pray for some power beyond this world
    Will it inspire me to be so great?

    Great enough to walk tall with harmonic strides
    And pretend I’m an ancient Egyptian
    With all the purple blood and veins
    Running from my toes to my skull

    The secret passageway door was opened
    “Come in” the sentry said
    He looks at my hand to see the mark of a builder
    “Welcome to the world of Freemasonry”, he said

    This was so fluidly(if that's a word, lol) flowed, that I just had to smile. All that attention to detail paid off. Great write.
