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

Alien landscape

 

We are all tourists

Some will be obsessed

Driven to make the most

Of each moment

They fail to take pleasure

In the nuances proffered

Others will passively move

From this reality to

Whatever awaits?

There are those who are

Unshakable and move

With grace and confidence

Through the darkest of times

Others claw their way

From first breath to last

To tremble at the touch of another

Can be a most precious gift

Painting the canvas of your life

The colors are yours to choose

Will you play it safe – muted colours?

Dare to express yourself with all the

Vibrancy within your grasp?

Time passes all to quickly

The years both kind and cruel

Reflected in the shading

Light and darkness in turn

Mortality a heartbeat away

Create while you can

The music of your life

*

Bisous,

 

Léa
