Four Walls and One Door


Four Walls and One Door

Today, as any other time
I ask
Why me?
And as any other time
I ask back
Why not me?

A question I need to ask
The answer already known
It's like four walls
with one door
of decision
and two windows
of curse and bless

Somebody is knocking on the door
Should I answer it?
Should I ignore it?
Why should I?
But why shouldn't I?

More question I need to ask
And the answer already known
I sit down on the floor
Listening to the knocking sound
on the door
From which window should I look out
Before answering the door

I think
then I believe
That curse or bless is not by semantics definition
The windows can be of any type, shape or colors
The sky will be the sky
The grass will be the grass
The flowers will still be the flowers
In their true form
When I see them through an open door
With these given eyes and heart

Four walls
with one door
and two windows
The roof won't fall

Today, as any other time
I ask
Why me and why not me
Is it a bless or is it a curse
Today, as any other time
I ask question with known answer

And proceed to answer the door
