interlude 2

i had finally found my way
to the center of the labyrinth

there was no minotaur here
no pile of bones
no evidence of the violence
that fill the ancient tales

the only sound was quiet
the steady rhythm of my own breathing

it was a circular room
with one entrance
so with one exit

nondescript white walls
plain and unassuming

in the middle a chair
not a throne
a simple chair

meant for simply sitting
and thinking
and pausing for a while

so i sat in it
and it invited me in

i sat awhile
back to the entrance
back to the exit
staring at the nondescript white wall

listening to the steady rhythm
of my own breathing

this was all there ever was
this was all there ever needed to be
this was enough
i was enough

i will always be enough
