Urban Contemplation 07: On Either Side of that Door It’s the Same

The city series….

Towards the open door….

caught in between

feeling things folding inward

there i stand

seeing things unknown

a future with no past

a past with no ending…

caught in between

magic and lost

a guiding light

a promised home

and there i stand…

with my intangible destiny

at the crossroad of life


the uncertain door….

On either side of that door it's the same

The ambiguities of life are like the opening of a door. We never know for sure what we will discover on the other side.

But one thing is certain… on either side of that door it’s the samethere’s memory and hope.

What are your thoughts? When you arrive at that “uncertain door” what is your reaction? What is your hope?

    • That door is always there in front of us. And it always opens to the uncertainity that surrounds us as we move through life. And you are right Mary, it is mixed with joy, fear and anticipation.
