The Door

If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door. ~ Milton Berle I needed a job-money and more, I knocked on door after door. All doors were closed, now what will I do. I will be brave, I will build a door. The door will be built out of, learning-reading and floral school. A business I will start, my creativity will take me through the door.
