Hallowed halls

I walked among the ancient walls
absorbing the years of reverence
the history of footfalls
echoing throughout the corridor

I feel the weight of faith
the power of belief
I'm swayed towards the light
from my grounded soul

A man mopping the floor
asks if I need directions
I speak to him, amazed
that he doesn't feel the power

"This building presents
the delight of a
magicians trick; it also
holds the secrets of the illusion."

he turned and continued cleaning
I stood, mouth agape
my thoughts tangled
my heart racing

because I knew it was true

Revisiting the past:
What I wrote one year ago
