One Foot Across A Threshold
One foot across a threshold,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
With a looking back
Does not guarantee,
Opportunities await with a patience.
Very few can say this for them is fact.
And that one foot,
Held in place with a moment of doubt
Just may feel a pain remembered,
By the closing abruptly of a door.
It is only upon entering,
With both feet planted
That one is exposed to new experiences.
And fresh adventures ready for exploration.
