When the world falls around him, he never wavers.

A man

Standing staid and tall

Chaos around him

But he is never shaken


A world

Dead in an instant


Slayed in a second


A life’s work

Slips away in a flick

A masterpiece

Spoiled with one stroke of a brush


One false move

Topples the tower

As one decision

Nullifies a war


Skyscrapers crumble

And legends meet their demise

Lives crushed

While heroes die


But the man

Stands tall in the tumult

Unafraid of his fate

As he watches others meet theirs
