CASTLE OF DREAMS

Castle of cards
Standing so tall
At the top of the world
You’ll never fall
Gust of wind
Brings you back to earth

Castle of sand
Small but solid
A wave to erase
All of your hard work
Not a single trace
Nothing is left

Castle of glass
Shining so bright, eternal
The moonlight turns you
Into sparkling diamonds
A storm shatters it
Now nothing but shards

Castle of wood
Sturdy and strong
Protected from the night
A single spark
Leaves only ashes
Blown in the wind

Castle of stone
Impenetrable defences
Safer than ever
No need to run anymore
Fated earthquake
Made it my tomb
