I long to pass through this gate.
The stillness beckons me.
Safely beyond these walls
Perhaps, at last, I will find the “it”
Which eludes me.
I have searched for this place
My entire life.
As I step through,
Carefully, with resolve,
My soul seeks to grasp the solitude
and hold it close,
Secure as the fastening gate behind me
and I drift
