#WritePhoto – Pillars

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

The pillars created a corridor of sorts, leading to an archway that brought me closer to my destiny.
Beyond that archway was the spot where I would devote my whole life to my chosen cause.
Each pair of pillars, in turn, seemed to represent all I was giving up.
My home.
My job.
My freedom.
My family.
My love.
My name.
My guilt…
But I was forsaking them for Him. And him.
As I approached the archway Mother Mary stepped forward, her smile beckoning me closer and it pulled me forward quicker.
“Come, my child, it is nearly time.”


The next time I walked by those pillars, I had shed all my worldly belongings and relationships – and my identity.
“Come, Sister Faith, let me show you to your room.” Inside, I smiled.
No one would find me here. No one would ever have to know…
