Building Mountains

God (Inspired by)

I was building

a mountain

with my bare hands.

I planned

the architecture perfectly.

I placed each rock

in a self-designed pattern.

But in a heartbeat,

everything came

crumbling down.

I was crushed by

the weight of worry,

trampled by

a burden

I was not meant

to undertake.

I am not meant

to build mountains.

I can only move them

if I have faith

in the only One

with the power

to create anything.
