Where I Walk

I walk the halls

haunted by

the echoing footfalls

of many famous men

I walk the halls

head held high

where few women before

ever dared

to venture

I walk the halls

come walk with me

talk with me

share with me the adventure

I walk the halls

these sacred halls

walk here with pride

not fear

I walk the halls

and no man yet

has chased me from my wandering

the sound of their wisdom echo as

I walk the halls

and think the thoughts

that women before me

could only dream
