Treasure Island

Sylvia Chidi

Doors will open


Doors will shut, open and close
I ask of you not to cry
While your troubles stir and fry
I ask of you not to sigh

Write this down with a pen
I cannot say when
Nevertheless, doors will open

Find those loose ends and tie them with a knot
Make some effort
Do not listen to any buts
You are the main decider
The one and only jockey rider
Of your own track events
Try to be patient
Not all rewards are heaven sent

So write this down with a pen
I cannot say when
Nevertheless, doors will open

Believe in yourself
Set out your goals
Think about yesterday, today and tomorrow
Keep walking even if hit by blows
Sometimes progress itself is slow
Yet, when it strikes you out of the blue
You will realise that it is indeed true
Doors will open!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
