Doors that lead to unknown destinations
haunt the periphery of decisions made,
for what path have I missed,
what light have I dismissed
before it could avail this curious mind.
We choose so often with frivolous abandon,
when crucial may be a door to open,
and suffer we the consequences of a poor choice,
the discharge of potential bliss
or righteous cause.
We cannot open all doors,
find place in multiple realities,
yet in consideration we can choose with a heart-felt reason
the road upon which we will struggle,
on which we may find reason for pain,
sacrifice for gain.
As one door closes another opens,
for stagancy was never a plan,
and no matter the path in scope or difficulty,
they cannot open without first knowing we can travail,
can overcome to glean what gifts life affords.
Open doors with care,
for often there is no way back,
and the more woven we become in circumstance,
the less we can find freedom,
the expense of choosing wrongly,
when gain like fools gold entreats commitment.
