the smell of my desperation has become a stench

“I’m going there someday”

That’s the Draper Utah temple there (seen here from a different angle back in 2009). There’s a children’s song they teach at church about the temple, and title of this post is one of the refrains:

I love to see the temple.
I’m going there someday
To feel the Holy Spirit,
To listen and to pray.
For the temple is a house of God,
A place of love and beauty.
I’ll prepare myself while I am young;
This is my sacred duty.

I still know it by heart and can sing every note. Why yes, I am the valedictorian of remembering Mormon Church songs.
