Door #2

Do I have to accept what I've been given?
Is it selfish to want something more?
Can I at least take a peak at what lies behind the curtain?
I want to know what's behind the other door.

If I knew, would I be happier?
Or does contentment hide elsewhere?
Did I make a mistake that 1st step long ago?
I can't decide anymore.

Now the worn tracks make retracing hard to imagine.
But how can I love this life I've been given,
when I'm always wondering what's behind the other door?


She fades away
each time she stumbles
fully aware of her depravity.
And when she gets it right
a smile appears
so proud of her abilities.
Worth attached
to every decision
brings much anxiety.
Unconditional love
hard to fathom
and surrender a mystery.
If the Truth she professes
guides her actions,
she finds the path to serenity.
Romans 8: 38-39
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
