The Portal


I hesitantly walked through the portal
As it's light grew, encompassing me,
Not knowing what lay ahead
I was blinded and could not see.

My palms sweaty, my mind racing,
I walked trying to reach the end,
Moving 500 miles a minute
This I did not intend.

Those minutes were precious
The portal started to fade
To where was I heading?
Would I be dismayed?

Scanning for a planet,
A warming star, a cooling night,
I soared through the heavens
searching for the finite.

I was the vortex of time
The portal was sealed,
At the core of the rift
I was the infinite shield.

Where would I be to this day?
If I had not followed through
The lore of the portal
Not knowing whether to pursue.
