Gift worthy of Gods,

Things aren’t what they always seem,

Surprise lies in wait.

These Walls

I was inspired by a post from a fellow blogger that made me think of the old historic Salem Church in Fredericksburg, Virginia, where intense American Civil War fighting occurred over May 3rd and 4th of 1863, during the Battle of Chancellorsville. The church was used as a hospital to attempt to help the wounded. Over 4,000 men were killed or wounded during the battle.

Here are some pictures of the church followed by my piece.

If these walls could talk,

What would they say?

They keep their secrets hidden within,

A sort of mystery,

A piece of history,

That no one can hear,

No one can see,

Forever silent,

For only they to keep.
