Doing It Some Good - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It took years to close a door
that should not have been opened.
Now that the action has been finalized...
There is knocking.
To gain entry.
There is a curiousity,
As to 'how' needs are met...
Without a concern shown or a help request.

It's not understood.
The action taken,
Did the one doing it some good.
A seriousness done shook up the ones
Accustomed to a life of jokes and fun!
And the one who took this action...
Showed them a happiness,
Did not need them to exist!
