I know it's there!
It's right in front of me
It's colourless, it has no key
It has no handle or letter box
It has no bell, knocker or locks
Yet it is still there!
Blocking my entry to somewhere?
It keeps me locked in this vortex
Of a self awareness complex
I can not escape its stares
It is only thing that cares
IN my world of hypocrisy
It keeps me from seeing my destiny
Yet i stay
I never try to run away
In my mind i think i should
And i suppose i could?
Its not stopping me leaving
But it keeps my mind thinking
Every time i look at it over my shoulder
I always seem to grow another year older?
I touch my cheek
And a second, soon becomes a week
I look at the door blocking my way
This door i see everyday
A smile soon passes my face
As everything falls into place
I must do something!
I soon realize everything
Memories and knowledge fill my head
Of all the things once done and said
This door that has been my friend for all these years
No longer reflects my deepest fears
My hand raises up and touches the door
I will defy Gods Law!
The door opens so easily
And on the other side you know what i see?
The same eyes stare back in amazement
I could feel both our excitement
The other me spoke first
In my voice he said " My Friend i feel the worse?"
And with that i stepped into his world and he into mine
He turned round and said "i hope u can see what i couldn't find?"
I just looked around at this new land
And turned around and shook his hand
The world i was in was different to the other
I saw the door behind me, it had such colour
My feelings had changed since walking through
My environment just felt so fresh and new
I made a promise that i would never ignore
This object in-front of me called the door
The door i realize now is a path way
A place to escape and get away
I know now that that i can be content
I am so glad, that to the door i went
I understand now that we all must change
Even if at first it may seem so strange
I will embrace the unknown with open arms
Safe in the knowledge that i will not be harmed
The door is open never shut!
Don't be sacred of with a 'but'!
Come and walk over, push the door with either hand
Wake up to reality and understand
Once you open the door you will see
standing on the other-side...... ME!
