​”Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one.” –Hans Selye

Carven, a temple of light and intricacy,

Supported by pillars, withatanding time’s pull.
Formidable, the structure of love and gaeity;
Foundations of strength, replenished, pooled.

     The strongest,
  May also be

Inhumed, pillars of robust structure,
Single event; grenade  –
ravaged the embodiment of time.
Caven in, ceiling of warmth, constitution,
One, inflicting pain, multiplied.
