We are like an age-old citadel,
That looks admirable from the outside,
We have been cited as an example, to the walls that are still being laid…
Only our heart knows, what it took to be resilient.
Only we are aware of the times we mended the walls discreetly…
The rough weathers tried to take us down,
Sometimes, we gave up on everything, but each other…
For, that’s all we ever had.
For as long as I reminisce,
I always found you by my side….
It has been difficult to hold on & I am really trying my best,
But you don’t seem to care anymore,
Something has caused an unrest…
I realise you’re finally turning into stone,
So that the walls don’t crumble away,
I hope I can bolster our damaged hearts,
I hope we can still find a way.
