The winds blew and we were caught in a storm,
Waves crashed furiously from nightfall into dawn,
We listened to each other speak and thought in our heads
But confusion reigned noisily and our hearts filled with dread.
The road wasn’t paved yet,
The ground was all wet,
The leaves blew into our eyes
Stealing our precious sight.
We soldiered on,
Two by two,
Carrying bricks with hands so worn,
One by one,
Our duty we did,
Our way back we knew,
When we finally turned back
To look at the city and you.
