Culture Shattering

Dear Reader,
After my former school got shut down, I spent my junior year at a small Christian school. While I was there, I wrote poems and a short story based on events in the Holy Bible. For this poem, this was inspired by the Tower of Babel. I hope you enjoy this poem.

Culture Shattering
The city was a working beehive
The sun was a bold sparkling flower
The sky’s limit could never get higher
Only the tower was able to touch
The tower in the city was a long ladder
It still stood long after
The tower can take so much

Wait! The tower is crumbling
The sky grows darker in anger
The people could feel it and the danger
Our culture is shattering
The Father plans no wager
The tower falls and no one can save her

Thank you for reading.
