Doors

Please forgive my extended absence. There have been numerous computer issues and all are not yet resolved. Lea

What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Never allow a person to tell you NO who doesn’t have the power to say YES.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

If a million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing.” – Anatole France

What others say and do is a projection of their own reality.”                                                                              – don Miquel Ruiz

Doors

everywhere we go

doors are behind us

some loom ahead

as though we must possess

some magical key

to gain entry

there are doors that

we must labor to gain entry

but our toil will be rewarded

some doors left ajar

anyone can access

you are welcome here

other doors remain sealed

regardless of our

sacrifice – slammed

in our faces, without a trial

publicly shamed for

our endeavors

impenetrable is the threshold

of the closed mind

entombed by ignorance, hatred,

control of what

they cannot comprehend

that which frightens – doorkeepers

doorkeepers who prey

on the doors of those

they chose to marginalize,

disenfranchise, condemn

robbing us of the power

of choice – self determination

… life

– Léa

    Such a wonderful representation of life. If only more people had minds like open doors. My thoughts are with you and the rest of France xx

  4. Lea I can so relate to this and I love the quote
    If a million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing.” – This one i will share with my kids to remind them not to be afraid of being who they are.

      Kath, your children are fortunate to be in such a family! I try to find quotes that mean something and that one spoke to me as well.
