Open Door

I thought what does it mean
when they would say 
He knocks on all doors
no concern if rich or poor
To my concern was I surrounded
by four walls 
engulfed in a empty room
with no way out
could anyone hear me
If I where to shout
Oh look what is this book
My Granddad had given to me
Why not see what is inside
I have heard 
Not to judge the cover
It is me and this book
I open and I  begin to read
What is that noise
I see cracks in the walls
outlining a door
The more I read it comes to life
the words are still alive 
I begin to believe
and to my surprise
I hear knock  knock
who could this be
I run to the outline of the door
In hope of someone setting me free
I yell please save me 
as I did all four walls

    I fully agree with this message. He will always answer our cries for help.

    If we knock He will answer. If we ask we will receive, if we believe we will find eternal life. Loved this message in your poem. God Bless Phyl

    This is a very good poem!! It reminds me of Jesus knocking on our doors, it is up to us to let him in.
