Gravity of Belief

The wandering soul
one foot before another
moving yet not moved
as if constant motion
would avoid the imprint
of something or someone
to fear or simply avoid
loneliness preferable
to the imagined harness
and though he notices
the sometimes loving
he seeks within hegira
to know the witness
who touches his feet
on the stone lined path
gently lifting the gravity
of his many beliefs
welcoming him long before
he gives himself the gift
of worthiness to be home.
