** Doors

Poem By RAJ NANDY

** DOORS

We rest secure behind bolted doors,
And lock all doors on our way out;
Through doors we are ushered in,
As a new born infant, or to leave in a
shroud!
Doors like our open arms, can invite to
embrace,
But a door when slammed on the face, -
Ceases forever to communicate!
That ‘welcome’ foot mat you see in
front, -
Is for wiping your shoes full of dirt!
For when we shut the doors of our heart,
Even doors left ajar, - will forever hurt!

open the door and keep the foot mat too someone's gonna come this way through thirsty, tired of strokes of heat In search of water and homely peace the door shall show him the way in maze of darkness, the shine of the day so keep it open............ thanks for sharing this piece..........
