Life and Its Doorways

Standing still in doorways,

I fear to enter,

So many I have entered before,

Self hatred tearing at my back,

Unknown urging agnst,

Butterflies surge forth,

Escaping and fluttering about,

Standing in wonder at the doorway,

Looking in, wondering,

What’s in store for me,

My choice to move paralyzes me,

Standing still I cannot move,

My chess piece constantly in play,

Exhausted standing at the door,

Vigilant and aware,

Fear creeping from behind,

Reasons to move forward echo,

Believing in faith,

Stepping forward into unknown,

Through doorway I enter,

As life moves forward.
