How to build Strength.

Pieces fall
Leaving behind a frame
Once covered and strong in appearance

The exterior was not the strength
It was the illusion given
It was false

Is on the inside
Where it remains unseen

Even though it is known to be there
We do not gaze upon it
As it can be empty

Because it is fragile
We put onto it what is inviting
Recognized as a grand temple of truth

Deteriorated by surrounding elements
Stripped down to bare bones
It is seen once more

Failed attempts to hide it
We leave it whether or not we rebuild
Until we build strength on the outside, then it can be filled.
