Built on dreams

Ten-sized more amazing

A signpost of gained figured it out

Length and profundity filled to flooding

With energy, voices & anticipation

Nebulous visions stroll through memories,

Of autos built,

Wartime aid, of solidarity

Bound in reason, to

Protect less, miserable cutting edge men lying

Throbbingly chilly against caution timbers

In the midst of shards of broken sheet

Not able to hear those 1904 voices of trust,

Achievement and thriving

Voices now slight, far off

As crackling joist impact

When relentless block

Breaking out roughly road side

Phosphorescent flares boiling over,

Looking for passageway, flexibility

Smoke saturating night air against sapphire sky

A century of history and city pride, eradicated in hours,

Dousing voices relaxed,

At that point hushed until the end of time.

The usage of the word forward or the short term: FORE is used for orientational reference in nautical vessels, aviation aircraft and space vehicles. It is traditionally used with other spatial reference terms: Aft or Stern, Port, Starboard

According to the Oxford English Dictionary: Forward or fore, in naval terminology, is an adjective or adverb meaning "towards the bow (front) of the ship", when the frame of reference is within the ship. Example: "Able Seaman Smith; lay fore!". Or: "What's happening fore?"
The corresponding adjective, in distinguishing one feature of the vessel from another, is before. See the caption to the right. Its antonym is aft. The corresponding preposition is abforward. For example, the mizzenmast is abaft the mainmast. Its antonym is after or, in a more clumsy form, aft of.

Forward also describes the direction of movement within an aircraft; that is, towards the front. Example: "Let's go forward". It may also describe the front location or region within an aircraft cabin. Example: "Forward lavatory".

It all appeared so well ordered

It all appeared so well ordered
A family – a household really
A fully functional, well-oiled machine

From outside looking in, there was even
A perceived warmth
A polite, comfortable life
There were disagreements, sure
It wasn’t fake, plastic or cold
Don’t think that

But those eyes looking in were not the only ones
Who fell prey to the deception
The family itself and even the traitor in their midst
Had been taken in by the belief
That this home’s foundations would hold up
Against those treacherous winds

But in truth this foundation
Was not built upon anything substantial
Merely routines, smoke and mirrors
So much so
That when the duplicitous actions of one of it’s members
Was exposed
It fell like a house of cards
