Are We Building UP or Tearing Down

Building Up or Tearing Down
I saw them tearing a building down
A gang of men in a dusty town.
 With a "yo heave ho" and a lusty yell
They swung a beam and a side wall fell

I asked the foreman if these men were as skilled
as the men he'd hire,if he were to build.
he laughed and said, "Oh no indeed.
Common Labor is all I need."

For those men can wreck in a day or two,
What Builders had taken years to do.
I ask myself as I went my way.
Which kind of role am i to play?

Am I a builder who builds with care,
Measuring Life by the rule and square?
Or am I the wrecker who walks the town,
Content with the role of tearing things down!!!

That's a rather meaningful poem. It can make us think.
