Within These Walls

Amanda wrote a poem using this prompt so I thought I would give it a try.

Within these walls lives a family.  
Surrounded by adversity and hate.
So many people wanting to destroy what we built.
Not realizing the strength of our bond.
Never to be broken,
Only made stronger by our fight to stay together.

Within these walls lives a family.
A family that thrives on love.
The fun times continue each day.
The laughter resounds throughout.
We are seemingly oblivious
To the world outside our door.

Within these walls we live now.
Perhaps to one day leave.
While our love will come with us.
Wherever we may go.
The echos of our laughter will remain.
Within these walls.
