The Closed Door

The Closed Door Shut the door Locked it tight Kept at bay All that will ignite The flame inside Barely a flicker in sight There is no silence Behind the door For the voices of my thoughts Are loud and worn Too many voices yell at me Telling me what should or shouldn’t be Is there wisdom behind these voices? Or are they just critics of choice My desire is to lock them out Allow me to discover what I am about Too much to ask at this date However; it is dangerous to hesitate Knock all you want I will not answer your call Leave me be Until I decide to stand or fall

Hi Darlene, Thanks for the welcome. I have been away, probably a long while. I have lost track, ha! Luckily, depression is not something I suffer from for long periods of time. This piece is to let people know that although the door is shut, you need to continue knocking. Take care.

"My desire is to lock them out Allow me to discover what I am about" when you get to this point you are self-fulfilled!

Hi Caren, Never seems to be though does it. Self fulfillment is a tough one to capture. Love your point though. Sue
