You want to grab the world and remake it?

you
want
to grab
the world
and remake it?
I
don't
see
how
you can.
  the world
is
a sacred
goblet
tugging,
you harm it;
grabbing
you drop it
go ahead,
says life,
then let go
breathe
soft,
then hard
be
strong
then weak
smash it,
and you'll be
destroyed
the wise
avoid
excess
they regard
persistence as
arrogance
