Concrete

The only thing that isn’t obsolete,
is the concrete
beneath my feet.
The concrete is true,
unchanging,
though grudgingly moved by time,
the same no matter whose blood paints it,
whether his, hers or mine
all things are obsolete,
save for the ground beneath my feet,
men are malleable
because their hearts are fallible
love corrodes
and the heart explodes.
But concrete remains solid
when untouched.
Through my lifetimes,
and as many times my soul
is reincarnated
and my body
is reinstated
the master truth that I have found,
is that you can trust nothing
but the ground.
So when compared to what is,
and what might be,
dreams come and go nightly,
but all dreams,
for all their wonder,
are unsure,
thus making them obsolete,
and the only real thing I can trust
is the concrete beneath my feet
