My dearest neighbour woke up early that morning
Unusually or perhaps usually unusually to me angry
Pushing through his window
In order to make way through unto the land
I drew nearer not by choice but by noise
As he broke his windows shatterdly on the ground
The net thorns him through as he struggles
There in the scene my mind spoke
Why wont you make use of the door
Because i was astonished at my dearest neighbour’s behaviour
I sincerely asked my dearest good neighbour
Because of that good i know my darling neighbour
His anger wage war annihilativly
As he forces himself through the window
But the fact remains, the window is too narrow
Its narrowness makes it undoable
My eager quest asked in quest unnoticely
Why suffer when you know what to do 
The door is open and there is no hindrance i see
His mood quickly answered me
But i desire to hear the confusion of the mouth
As to why my dearest neighbour must suffer
These lost and time, yet not able to pass
Right through his eyes and acts i heard
Life is unfair, very unfair to be true
When i look to see a door
But i see no door to the doors i see others pass
Unfortunately, all i was able to see is a space
But the way in the space, there is no way
How do they think i can pass through a space
Right there, i wish they know
Spaces are there to be made way
Ways always have and entrance known as door
Early through the nature’s call
All that were in existence are spaces
To the first man the faces were so dim that he said
The space was without form and void
Yet he made the spaces ways
There and then his originality transferred to us beckon for action
As the space world was quickly made a way world
Other comes, to those who knew follow suit
Making ways in the spaces
Although, the spaces have been made form
For it to be easy to be made way
Truly, every man is ordained as the man
That created way out of void and no form space
Because it is man’s call, in us all, we have the power
