Losing History

Losing History

Buildings centuries old
Part of our history
They are who we are
They still echo with voices
Voices telling us who we were
Now, they are neglected
Left to rot under Summer rains
The art within is lost
The stories within the buildings are never told
The memories of who built them fade
They turn to dust as quickly as the buildings
Now is the time to save history
To let our childrens children know
That we had a glorious history
One to be remembered
Not left to fie and rot
They were always more than myths
For good or bad they have to know one thing
They were us
