doors that lead to darkness
doors that lead to light
doors that lead to death
doors that lead to life

turning knobs and twisting locks
at a big black door a voice says...STOP

it sounds like a party on the other side
little do i know it's a door to suicide

down the hall i can hear loud voices call
to the left and to the right...i seek a door of light
illumination spills around the frame
i ask for wisdom...given the keys to the kingdom
i slip it into the lock...angels sing while demons scream

the devil cries "DON'T GO IN OR YOU'LL SURELY DIE!!!"
prejudice and pride put to the side...i open the door and walk inside
covered in multiplies

the door closes and mad men keep knocking
the clock on the cross keeps ticking and tocking
beauties now turn into beasts...i see the truth...from the highest to the lowest...from the greatest to the least

the devil keeps knockin but he ain't coming in
he huffs and he puffs but he just won't win
winners turn to losers as they walk through demon doors...they cover them with flowers and paint a pretty world
wise ones walk through doors...some plain but spewing light
lighting up the darkness in those neverending nights

as i'm walking down that hall that leads to heaven and to hell...i'm walking through those doors where i can hear those bells
the silent sound of freedom,love and liberty
God guide me through your doors...the doors of divinity

    Greetings Anthony! Inward doors to faith and simplicity, surely open to where light resides. I should go back and read your earlier writes, but you gotta know that they are all mind probes and shouldn't be read when in a rush. Wishing you the best, Anthony! Mikki

    A great job you did with this. I believe people would be better off if they knew more about the choices they made. The door either leads to darkness or to light
