    i walked through the crowd,
    between people.
    between differences,
    and similarities.
    and i knew not,
    that i had until i reached the door.
    unsure of how long it took,
    i steadily watched my watch.
    trying to stay on time,
    for what----i don't know.
    i was experiencing the world,
    in a hallway.
    cultures and backgrounds,
    passed my shoulders.
    KINGS and QUEENS,
    spoke to me.
    myself never knowing,
    who they truly were.
    royalty that day,
    spoke to me-a peasant.
    further on miracles occurred,
    and blessing pressed against me.
    doing as i was,
    trying to reach their destination.
    i bought no plane ticket,
    to enjoy this celebration.
    i just simply walked,
    my way through history.
    and this time-no time machine,
    was present to take me there.........
