within and beyond

DSCF5109The doors are always open

         on the arch of each if destiny so chooses

                  is beautifully inscribed

                                 allusions to what lies

                                                 within and beyond

                     words so carefully chosen to spark my desire

                                              to embark on such adventure

         a myriad of mysteries awaits


how is it that I am to choose

         drawn to the ones

                        with promises of earlier and similar

                                              in which the highest of risks is involved

                                                                    the heart lying open

so what of all the other doors

                             where safety is assured

           where I could live that middle ground of nothingness

                                                no stakes at all

i have stepped through those doors

                       and die that slow emotional death

                                                with nothing left to live into the day

then one day

                    new archways appear

         and how am i now to choose

                            beckoned by the most passionate of journeys

the door is opened widely

always the best
