Thursday Inspiration # 52

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is crumble and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “Crumblin’ Down” co-written and performed by John Mellencamp in 1983.


Saw my picture in the paper
Read the news around my face
And now some people
Don’t want to treat me the same
When the walls come tumblin’ down
When the walls come crumblin’ crumblin’
When the walls come tumblin’ tumblin’ down

Crumbling walls

The whole world collapsed in front of my eyes

The crumbling and falling pieces disappearing

Deep into an unseen abyss without a sound

It was surreal

When I woke up, I was glad to be in a world

That was intact and functioning

It was true that my life had changed recently

But the world still existed, we still lived

The dream showed me a reality that I feared

But also gave hope that things weren’t

As bad as we imagined or apprehended

We still live
