Empire on my Mind

by Kevin Tennert 12 months ago in inspirational

An incredible and iconic New York City landmark

You are the grand scheme of an intellectual thought

Engraved in the psyche of a promised hand

To be painted and crowned with great distinction

Reserved for the honorable and sacred high command

The pieces of your core are carried up one by one

We all participate in an era of great strife

Our contribution will stand the test of time

Our eagerness is strong to see it come to life

It takes its form with the very notion of grace

It touches the clouds and goes way beyond

Amidst its euphoric part of daring competition

Our imagination without limits it can easily correspond

It emboldens its very throne just before completion

The symbolic stature impossible to imitate

So imposing it seems no matter where you be

Ingenuity, reverence and admiration, it can resonate

Time has no effect on its lifetime boldness

Whisked away by its impressive stance

Nothing else can remove its imperial crown

We encircle it happily in a ceremonial dance

The breadth of personality it gives to us all

It never delays, it cuts to the chase

The sagacity it gives to its namesake

With you in mind, we think of one place

Architectural celebrity is a self-giving title

The contemporary hardship is truly hard to bear

Its efficacy and grandeur are a league of their own

It’s enough to cause a stare, this castle in the air

On the big screen it dominates its place

The most ideal backdrop of an energizing plot

It shares its love and pride to every guest

A true invigoration of intrepid freedom of thought

The source of inspiration is its noble cause

To guide the hand that holds a pen

Its stake in culture one cannot overlook

To mystify or vision time and time again

Our lord and protector of the cityscape

The king of towers we must classify

For what you’ve done amazes us all

We’ll always bow down to you and so will I.
