Closed doors

Building from ruins,

We cement and paste;

Trying to start over,

With rubble as a base.


A weather wrought place,

With beams of woe;

Taping the shattered glass,

Of our better tomorrow.


A parade of sorrow,

Marches through void floors,

Unheard by outsiders,

Behind our closed doors.

        We may make mistakes, but we learn from those mistakes in order to build a better future. Learn from the past and move on to carve your path into the future!

        Truly enjoyed reading it!
