August 16th: Thoughts and Mortar

Concrete Pouring
Almost Flooring
Dirty Work
But never boring

Paint the walls
Raise the roof
For Maria
And her youth

Stray dogs roam the streets
Quite used to blistering heat
You see their ribs,
See their bones,
But you can´t give them a home.

Education is a plus
Kids come running without a fuss
Lucky to learn
Lucky to live
Lucky for teachers willing to give

A window opens
Bright, Yellow, Oasis
Turning frowns to happy faces
Nurture hopes, encourage dreams
Opened, Opening, Open Windows
