Opening Doors

by Ron Reed

I was a brash boy
full of vinegar and self-assured
brave when cloistered in safety
I had a chain of keys
hanging from my belt
30 more…with no Godly purpose
but I had 30 or more keys

I wagged the chain smiling
flashing it at Grampa with a grin
the keys caught his eye
and I exclaimed
“Grampa, look how many keys I have!”
Grampa smiled kindly… and said,
“You seem to be locked out of many places”
Leave the doors open to endless possibilities

    • Sulekha – It isn’t meant to be sad…the lesson Grampa gave me was don’t lock yourself out…leave the doors open to endless possibilities. Thank you for visiting 😉
