I liked this poem very much...in the end, I guess, everyone becomes homeless and the feeling of being at home is only a short-lived illusion...

Loved the poem. I believe doors were made to keep us in, not out.

Virtually flawless stanzaic structure & cadence highlights and fuels this fine display of contemporary free verse. Close-out line speaks volumes & delivers with poetic power...~FjR~

I have found that one of the hardest lessons- not that I ever felt myself to be superior, no my inclination ran in the opposite direction from superiority- but the older I grow the more I must admit, we're all much the same, in every way that counts.
