The Half-Open Door

Poem By Terry Donovan

R

I stand before
A half-open door.

Should I enter or not?

I think I will be welcomed
Or it wouldn't be ajar
But if I push it further
Would that be a step too far?

Enter, wait or turn and go?
What should I do?
How can I know?

Whatever I do it could be wrong
But then it could be right
Or should I just do nothing
And hope for an invite?

Why don't we get instructions?
Why isn't there a guide?

Why isn't that door firmly shut
Or if not - open wide?
