A Life With No Door


My heart aches, for those like you
Who don't know where they're going, Don't know what to do.
Never given any encouragement, protection or self worth.
And never feeling love. Not even at birth.
Growing and learning yet never getting anywhere,
Learning only of survival... as no one shows they care.
Education did not exist- Only survival felt right.
Living only for today - And only tonight.

But the giving that I gave opened many doors,
So many options, for me to explore.
I gave so much and opened arms grabbed me,
Helped me to grow and made me really see.
That anyone can survive, A Life With No Door,
As long as you have the windows and Know that there is more.
More for you to explore and to realise how important you are,
Especially the distance you have travelled and just how far
How far you have grown and what you still need to see
To realise this huge lesson; has given you the will to believe.

    Through writing poetry I can see how I've grown and where I'm going - your poem brought that out - never think of it that way. Every poem is just an instant in the reality of life. Really like your poetry, look forward to reading more of it. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    A fine cellebration of resilliance, triumph over adversity with the fuel of love and a nurturing helping hand to power self determination. (Report) Reply

    Many spend their lives behind closed doors, rarely catching a glimpse of the sun. Deep and thought-provoking. (Report) Reply
