Glass House

Smooth glass 

Cracks under pressure

Lets light sneak past

Fragile strength 

Shelter

Safety

Beauty

Essential transparency 

It sees 

And is felt

Water slips down

Creating a path

In the dirt

That has coated 

The outside

Unknowingly

Unwillingly

Becoming a shield

From all that the earth

Can supply

Wind blasting

Lighting striking

Rain pouring

Pouring

Pouring

Fingerprints left accidentally 

Marks created 

Shapes engraved 

My house is made of glass

You can see into it

Through it

Past it

You can choose 

To break it down

Shatter its walls

Remember 

However you choose

To leave a mark

As gently or violently as you must

It will not go unseen

Que será, será
