Restoration

Written by: William Crocker

Walls built on walls, Temple over temple, Cities built to last, Read about their past. Crumbling stones Mingled with the ashes Tell their story . . . Civilization ended. . . . Now . . . A sign on a cathedral, “YOUR DONATIONS ARE NEEDED FOR THE RESTORATION OF THIS TEMPLE.” Plans built on plans, Life built for success, Achievement after achievement; Shattered dreams Mingled with despair; Lost on that journey, See the fallen star; Future suspended. . . . Now . . . A sign on my heart, for God, “YOUR PRESENCE IS NEEDED FOR THE RESTORATION OF MY SOUL.”
