A Firm Foundation

One is not supported
Merely by boards and beams.
The creation of a foundation is not often aborted,
Whether built on forest ground or near a calming stream.

A foundation must be firm,
Enduring over the years.
Something that is long-term,
Not eroded by sorrowful tears.

While time may be crude,
Breaking apart the traces of youth,
One should only be shrewd
For in this is revealed a truth.

A foundation is where one plants the roots,
Lasting for many generations.
Sometimes marked by muddy boots,
But always formed by dedication
Of those who walked the land long before.
