'Tween Two Doors

Updated on December 11, 2012

I stand 'tween two doors

The one behind me closing

Before me I see green paths

Stretching forth to opportunity

The creaking sound of the past

Reminds to move forward

To embrace the open space

My feet remain planted

Ankles mired in the deep

Voices urge me not to let go

To hold the closing door open with all my will

I give in to the voice

My back stubbornly braces the door

Forcing the wooden obstacle open

Why must I fight so hard?

My heart yearns to run down the green paths

Paths that have been set before me by an unseen hand

Yet I balk once more

I hold on to painful memories

These golden dreams of yesterday

When I was on top of the world

Mistress of the universe

A court never to regain

My crown exchanged for plow

Shall I let the door close?

Or shall I continue to hold fast?

I stand 'tween two doors
