beckon them to awe at my glory, but they do not feel. The travelers, they come from
near and far. They come proud and confident in their present and close their eyes to my past. Oh the stories I could tell them. Oh the warnings I could give. Alas, they do not wish to seek out my secrets but to snap their picture and tick their list.
My sacred steps were once stained with the blood of the saints as they battled
injustice. Now they are where these travelers buy their worthless wares from fools.
My benches were once the measuring rod that found king and peasant equal in their
quest for wisdom and mercy. Now they are a mere holder for these thoughtless travelers refuse. They take for granted my sanctuary. They glance at my beauty. They find me wasted and useless compared to their faculties. To this ignorant traveler I will remain cold & dark. I will disregard them as they do me.
Oh travelers heed my words! Open your eyes! Seek and find and be changed! For
the one who chooses not to see, who chooses not to hear, there is not greater fool
How I long for those who will look. To those few I would share my
wealth. I would instruct as a caring teacher. I would reveal my beauty to the ones who, into my depths, dare to peer. Who dare to ask ‘What happened here?’
