only choice
is to build

Janet Kuypers
started 12/28/16, finished 1/2/17

walking through ruins
she saw desolation
she saw people saddened
ashes over everything

she walked through the rubble
reached her hand in
pulled out one brick

dusted it off

everyone was saddened
everything was ruined

she saw this brick
and thought

what can I build

*

you think it’s over
but this is your chance

let’s start anew
let’s start from scratch

let’s make the world
as we
          see it could be
