    Within These Walls
    By Jacqueline Amos



    Within these wall I say to thee.
    The foundation that is left to thee.
    The ceilings of truth shall prevail thy love.
    Within these walls thy heart speaks.
    Within these walls there have been many coats.
    Within these walls I have been preserved for a greater war
    .
    There shall be no conversance,
    if the foundation shall crumble and fall.
    Let thy walls be the strength of thy rock.
    Let thy cover bring beauty to all.
    Let not the frame confuse thy thoughts.
    Let not the windows,
    become dirty that surround within thy walls.
    The foundation is strong that you may not fall.
    Within these walls the scars have faded ,
    within the surface of thy coat.
    The glossy paint that creates,
    the surface for which it stands.
    Within these walls I give to thee.
    The greatness of women and men.
    Within these walls.

    "The greatness of women and men.
    Within these walls"- I say, this piece shall not go unnoticed!
