Builders or wreckers!
I watched them tearing a building down
a gang of men in a busy town
with a hoe- he- hoe and a rusty yell
they swung the beam and the side wall fell...
I asked the foremen are these men skilled
he gave a laugh n said no indeed
jus unskilled labour is all I need
I can easily wreck in a day or two
wat builders have taken a year to do...
and I thought to myself as i went my way
which of these roles have i tried to play
am i a builder who works with care
measuring life with rules and squares...
Am I shaping my deeds to a well made plan
patiently doing the best i can
or am i a wrecker who walk the town
content with the labour of tearing down???
P.S : i remembered this beautiful recitation frm school... don remember the author but it sure makes a lot more sense several years after passing out :)
