The Test

weathered and battered slowly crumbling 
away
built to withstand the strongest storms
Foundations were set six feet deep
years gone by trying to hold up to the test 
of time
broken and beaten by the wind and the 
rain
piece by piece slowly toples away
once was a mighty barrier now nothing 
more than a feeble memory
lost an abandoned never to be restored
just a little love and compassion each in 
every day would have been enough to 
preserve for future generations to desire
