The Door

The door invites you to enter,

Wishing away all its solid faces.

Many things hide behind it;

Pain, joy, sorrow, elation,

Life and death beyond its borders.

How can you not go through?

Why stand there and wait

Until it unlocks for you?

Reach for the knob and turn.

Don’t walk away, just open it.

See, there is another side to things.

There is more than one way.

Don’t hesitate, go forward

With outstretched arms.
