Opening what was previously closed,
A gateway to endless opportunities,
Glossy, slick, and lustrous.
It is the dawn to new beginnings,
It is the aid to hope and freedom,
Yet it accommodates the most bitter goodbyes.
Leaving loved ones trailing,
Not knowing if the time will come,
That you see them again.
What most don’t suspect as it’s in clear view,
They grasp it without thinking through,
A door knob.
