    Revolving Doors

    Life is a supermarket departmentalised with revolving doors. Life is also a pharmacy with one way doors. Life is the transcendence of an ******. Life presents us with a room of doors which lead to a multitudinous chance experience.

    the problem is if the door opens,

    is it really open or is it just cracked with someone on the other side who don't want you there. Be diligent but careful

    When one door closes,

    another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us. Alexander Graham Bell

    Looking Back

    With each door that closes a new one opens, yet often, we keep staring at the door that closed, ignoring the ones that are wide open, waiting for us, because we are blinded by our own emotions. Still though, when you are ready...that opened door will be awaiting for you.
