Doors

Doors that open
Doors that close
Doors that lead
Where no one goes

Doors with knockers
Made of brass
Doors with windows
Coloured glass

Doors to push
Doors to pull
Doors that spin
So down you fall

Doors with bars
Doors with stops
Doors in cars
All with locks

Doors of oak
Doors of steel
Doors with studs
That you can feel

Doors to lead to other states
Doors created out of hate
Doors which are set
To separate

Doors behind which dogs do bark
Doors from which to make a start
Doors where people leave their hearts
Step apart

Doors imprison
Doors release
Doors preserve
Silent peace

Doors stay stuck
Doors stay open
Doors stay closed
Some get broken

Doors invite
Doors repel
Doors forbid
Hide as well

Doors of secret
Doors of light
Doors with cracks
That creak at night

Doors of Life
Are Doors the same
To find the door
That bears your name

That is the game

such a multi-faceted commodity, this door.
I really enjoyed reading this poem and I found it to be well written. It gives the reader something to think about.
A lot meaning to this write actually. Really enjoyed this one, especially liked the last stanza. Very well written.
