~ Knocking On The Door ~

A door, stood stoically before me
Calling to my heart
Would I reach forth, knock tentatively
For all it may impart
Or, would I recoil....turn away, too uncertain
yet, to grasp a hold and turn that knob
Just too unsure to clasp

But, open it I must
For, there is nothing on this side
worth the staying for
No lasting love to ascertain
no treasure given, any other turn
to hold me, no-one here to guide
a safe and certain way

There must be all beyond that door
A purity, a hope
I must step up and find
or I will never cope
I cannot turn my back now, return to where I was
Not now that I have found..
This door, to where I'd surely know

There, beyond that door, to see
with eyes of faith, belief
eternal light, a pathway onward
to find..the more
and know for sure,
a life eternal, unfolding here for me
today, yes, just inside the door

Soft whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems 2007

It is only when we silent
the blaring sounds of our daily existence
that we can finally hear
the whispers of truth that life reveals to us,
as it stands knocking
on the door of our hearts.
