Silent Resilience

Silent Resilience
by, Melissa R. Mendelson

They sat in silence, 
watching the world 
rise and fall
in every breath,  
taking in all 
that is beauty, 
which fought to stay 
but was now left to fade. 
And Time was not kind. 
As they watched lives pass, 
the world turn, 
they crumbled 
with each bitter moment 
of history, 
our strong foundation 
now left open to ruin. 
Yet, they still remain, 
and they sit in silence, 
refusing to break, 
hoping the world will take notice 
to stand ground 
and become strong.
