A Lesson In Life - Poem by Lyn Paul

Close that door!
Quickly;
Close it.
Another,
Is trying to open.
Two,
Two different doors
Ajar...
Waiting,
Waiting,
To be opened.
It's hard,
So hard.
Which one?
What decision?
A change
Take the left hand
Take the right hand
But will I pick
The 'right' hand
Each hand is
A Lesson in Life

    I wouldn't pick either door - I'd rather find out for myself what is beyond them. Learning lessons, experiencing them as I walk the path least trodden in life. Discovering in my own way and time the essence of my own life. Not wanting to compare it with anyone else's, because we each have gifts and talents that are different.and we grow through them to maturity. Good write though - thought provoking.
