in search of temples

have you ever tried to pray your way home?

have you met tongues that can silence the tempest?
have you spit daggers into the belly of death?
have you heard earth groan under the weight of glory?

when you dream
do you chase the arrows that shoot out before you?

and do you know you cannot get lost
when the compass points back to you?
