A Portal

Walking through the portal

brain fog beginning to lift

the frenetic pace slows

such a gift

No longer willing to pay tribute

to a corrupt band

the doorway is open

to a free land

Beyond the icy corridor

the sun begins to shine

cool crisp air

breathing for the first time

The journey long

enemies have been defeated

released from slavery

never again cheated

A new world

visions of a new life

exiting the portal

finding a new site

Living freely

spirit no longer empty

surrounded by love and laughter

in this land of plenty

Through the portal again

this time as a guiding spirit

releasing those in bondage

who are brave enough to leave it
