Architects of the Impossible

Come dreamers,
be our architects!

Escape the grave
of gravity!

Conceive of castles
in the clouds

and break through
any boundary!

Envision brilliance!
Stare and dare

design outside
the perfect square!

Cast old blueprints
into the fire

then innovate!
Surprise!  Inspire!

For this is how
we've reached the stars:

not by more horses,
trains, or cars,

but by things that
did not exist.

Refine the science!
Rise!  Persist!
