The Door Of Naked Souls
Eternal, ever present, the Door Of Naked Souls,
No toll to pay except one, you must carry nothing through,
It is the beginning and the end of every single road,
No matter the traveller, this much is ever true.
No trinkets nor garments may cross its threshold,
You must exit as you enter, stripped to the bone,
And though you step in, to the arms of another,
The outward step must be taken alone.
Do not fear the door, it is not evil, nor vicious,
It bears no ill will, is neither foe nor friend,
It is neither benevolent nor malicious,
Just the door of beginnings, and the door at the end.
