The Door

The door
Sue Vincent’s #Writephoto

The door that locked me in
The door that became my canvas
Ignited my creativity,
Stirred my numb mind
I am glad I didn’t unlock it!

The door that barred my way
The door that masked my mirages
Peeping outside was a sin
It taught me to look within
I am glad I learnt to introspect.

The door that sparked curiosity
The door that revealed the world
Delusions died with the door
Realism was stark and stormy
I am glad I could see!

The door that I shunned willingly
The door that I churlishly closed
To emerge saner, subtle minded
Positive vibes kept me snug
I am glad it nurtured me!

Till the walls weakened
Inspiring me to look beyond
All fears embedded in that door
I move into the realms of my choice
Into the world of love and peace.

  1. Balroop, you have created a fascinating poem by using this door as a metaphor of all we
    hide, close in and hide from.
    But you break free and I love the last stanza:
    Till the walls weakened
    Inspiring me to look beyond
    All fears embedded in that door
    I move into the realms of my choice
    Into the world of love and peace.”

  2. I guess a door can mean differently to different people. For some, it opens opportunity. For others, it might be an impediment or a blockage! I don’t imply a positive or negative outlook rather it is about the experience we have had! Beautifully penned!

    1. Even if the door remains closed, even if people keep you away from catching the opportunities…they turn into learning experiences arv. Who can understand it better than you who must have seen many such persons yearning for freedom.
      Thanks for standing by, much appreciated.
