A Lesson In Life


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

    You make me laugh with this poem...I must say choices are hard,
    sometimes I think should I or shouldn't I and sometimes I do...
    and most of the time when I act on impulse it is usually
    the wrong thing to do...great write :) (Report) Reply

    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.

    I'd go in one and come out the other. I can only learn so much from reading and listening to other people recounting their views. It has a sting to it but I would much rather know something through experiencing it than presume what it might feel like. There is no such thing as the wrong way. Every way holds a lesson to be learn't, should we be willing to learn it.
    Another excellent thought provoking poem Lyn. (Report) Reply

    and each lesson in life is because of the decision you've made.
