Locked Doors

Locked Doors

A Poem by Laura E. Aranda
"

I wrote this after being inspired by a guy named Noah Watt who is a youth advacate in innercity Atlanta. We went to Bible School together and eventually I found his blog somewhere. Well after reading about his work I birthed this.....

"

I can beat all day

I can tug at the knob

I can ask for a key

I can peer thru this window

I can pretend there is no Bolt

There is no Lock

There is no Master Key

Somewhere just of out reach

Why o why

Does all my future plans hide and glisten behind this glass padlocked door

Where o where Is the key that unlocks all my dreams and future goals and plans

Who o who will open this door for me

When o when can I step thru and revel in the Now-I-have-arrived stage

Or is it all a mirror

Am I fooling my self

 Must all I do is turn around and see the future is all around me

Just waiting to be beheld

The key is in my hand

The Padlock is at my feet

The knob is not latched

 There is no locked door between me and my future

I am standing in my NOW

Ah, it sems that you already know the one who first spoke while answering questions like this. He said that you already have the master key. Luke 11:9.

I found your poem to be very well done and one that deserves to be hung on the wall to be read over and over again. It lets us know that all we need do is take that one step of faith into the future.

Yes the truth will set you free and you will be free indeed. Life the search for Love Respect and Understanding for the one who says you are their number one. Your writing is blessed.
