A great teacher once said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
My journey begins
The mazes of my mind pulling at me with the fingers of memory,
Calling to me with the voices of ages past.
My feet search in the darkness for the first step
Of the spiral staircase
Leading downward away from, nay, TOWARD
A deeper knowledge!
I find the railing
Gently tracing the turning of the wood with my fingertips
As I step down
Searching, seeking the next step
From the darkness of the mind’s maze
Into the light!
The light whispers to me
The still, small voice
I strain to hear
Forced to travel on
Deeper down, into the depths
Searching, seeking the next step.
Deeper still I travel.
The whisper now a gentle hum surrounding,
Wait, WITHIN me!
My heart beats in time with the hum.
I turn down the spiral
Into the beating of my heart.
I reach the last step.
Darkness pushed back by light.
The labyrinth of my soul spread out before me
Encircled and encircling in LOVE!
