House of Cards

Living in a house of cards
The walls aren't thick enough
To block the ill regards.
Nor, do they block the sound
Of my sharpening sword.
Still, I hear them questioning
How sharp mine is,
Or if it's even sharp at all.
Every note I play
Further from dull,
They wonder why,
So persistently,
I grind and polish.
Well, like a samurai
That's made up his mind,
No longer blind,
Knowing any time,
Is just as good 
Of a time to die,
I can love
With no more time resigned;
What's to fear
About a fragile house falling
When your blade is fit
to carry through
The other side?
