a sundering willfulness

power before wisdom

as we struggle to put one block upon the other,
we work to build connections,
wholenesses we seek in hopes each will perpetuate itself
and counter the sundering willfulness
that works each moment
to knock down the blocks,

our first born son delighted to knock block structures down
months before he delighting in building such a structure,

I fear how much we achieve power
too long before we achieve wisdom.
