Avenue of Door's

Go down

Avenue of Door's Empty Avenue of Door's

Post  Sue McDonald on Fri Apr 20 2012, 07:25

We, were given eight doors,
of which to write about,
where we thought they may lead to,
would we go in or come out.

Didn't quite know how to approach them,
how to address them all,
Should they all have a colour?
or look wooden, mysterious and old.

I decided to approach them quite differently,
tie them to some of my life,
include them in avenues I've taken,
some of which haven't been nice.

I'll start as you would with door one
after all thats where I begun
hope you will follow me through
please know that all of its true !

Door one to me was opened
after taking my first breath,
breathing in and out
expanding small lungs and chest.

Door two was at my kindy
where friends were newly made
the sun shone warmly over us
as in the playground games were played

Door three was to my high school
such trying miserable days
of bullying and torment,
the pain and vision stays !

Door four opened some happiness
I started fulltime work
met people who were friendly,
I felt I had some worth.

Door five I've left behind me,
as I left my family home
I loved them but they hurt me
happier pastures I hoped to roam.

Door six is to my heart
my husband found the key,
through it came my soul mate
full of love support and laughter,so happy he made me.

Door seven opened up motherhood
after marrying my love,
three beautiful children,
all healthy thank heaven above.

Door eight, I will say is my laptop
it has a door of sorts,
one thats brought new friendships
and kept my poetry in thought.

These eight doors all hinging
on some avenues of my life
some of them have closed now
though others remain open for life !
