You slowly open the door
...."These doors"....
And what is behind them
Quickly leaps out
Trying to take hold
An invitation
Toward the unknown....
The battle begins
Begins, for it's control!
Pandoras box
The forbidden fruit
When will you learn?
When will you know?
How many times
Must you fall?
How many tears
For them all?
A lifetime of lessons
A lifetime of doors
At the end of the hall
At the end
The end of it all!
How many doors
Have you left to turn?
"When"....Will you ever learn?
These doors, like metaphors....
Knock knock, who's there?
Turn right
No, turn left
Through this door
No, go through that
Past it's corridore, to
It's if and or....
To, it's other door
No, it's many doors
Any doors?
In the end, you shall choose!

    Just another great one from John...I don't know how I missed this one...The title made me think of a dream I used to have when I was a kid...Doors everywhere down a long corridor and I had no idea which to choose...Wierd huh? Breathe me in was just a poem about a fantasy or illusion I guess a hope of a possiblility....anyway, i will let you go for now...Love me

    oh I love this poem John, yes so many doors open up to us in this life, I made a little picture in decemeber last year and i drew a road with side roads but no exit signs on each one and A big no U turn sign in the same way I asked the Lord to only open the doors which he chooses to open for me this poem is great, eminds me the only door I want to open is the one to my heart always for God, Amen Bless you from diane
