THE TOWER

Long ago the people
Built a tower very high
They yearned to see their God
Who lived above them in the sky

But they had no appointment
Or permission for the task
So God said I don’t think so
Did you not think first to ask?

He changed the way they spoke
And then He sat back with a grin
You once were all the same
But now the real test will begin

My path is very simple
And it’s there for you to find
It lies there now before you
Though you act as if you’re blind

Now show me you can be as one
Though different as can be
And then my children I will let
You come and visit me
