Open Or Closed? - Poem by Lyn Paul

A closed book will not heal
If it does not open, No one will know how you feel
A closed door, does have a key
But are you welcome, What do you see?
A closed window can open wide
Just polish the glass and see what's outside
A closed hand, must reach out
It must open that fist, even if in doubt
An opened coffin is there for all
But are you ready? ready to fall...
An opened mind is needed so much
A wonderful way to stay in touch
An opened heart can be felt by all
It can guide so many it can stop the fall
So opened or closed it can go anyway
Just... Accept and believe, each and every day

    “polish”? isn’t that in eastern Europe? oh, you mean clean? no wonder we can’t see out our windows!

    “A closed hand, must reach out
    It must open that fist, even if in doubt” ………………… Nice.

    I so enjoy good rhyming, which this has, but sometimes the effort [to rhyme consistently] interferes [I feel] with expressing the meaning(s) of the poem. but I’ll pass you on this one, THIS TIME!

    I was trying to think of your last name when I came across it in a comment you posted on a Kelly Kurt poem.
