No Babbling Towers Allowed
There are mountains big and tall,
where many a man can fall.
A challenge to subdue them
arises in man’s thirst to
conquer, achieve and rule.
Instilled in our hidden chambers
are archives of mysteries
hidden in mankind from the beginning
We are seekers, conquers,
survivors in our unique makeup.
Some allow these characteristics
to lie dormant and others waken
them in ambition and seeking.
We subdue our own habitat
and treasured lives with gifts
we are endowed with by our maker's
Given the ability to create, manifest
and grow in ambition to rule over
the land and habitats.
With only one forewarning, building
no towers of Babel lest they tumble
and destroy your attempts to rise
higher than the maker.
"Man is the creator of his own destruction and greed"
