Parallel Lives

Blood, sweat and steel
Twisting metal to form
Two perfect lines
The same hammer shaped them;
Pounding out imperfections and
Inspiring character
Wood splintered between them
Between them, hope found and lost
Men gave their lives
And at their feet, new worlds set ablaze
Innocence danced around them
On hot, boyish summer days
Wishes on pennies
Laid on their backs and left ungranted
Parallel lives.
A matching pair
Moving forward, side by side
Through it all,
Still never touching
