What's Knocking

What's Knocking

A Poem by Ryan Daniels

Glory comes knocking

On your door

Which takes you

Nowhere but forward

Turn the doorknob

Out of the wonderment 

For the truth.

That comes to question

Is it really yours?

Appearing only in a form that 

You never thought it would be

It's only your mind that struggles

With opening the door.

But your heart already feels 

what's on the other side

Is it really life?

Is it the illusion that your mind thinks?

One day it will come to your door

And the glory will be all yours

That is if you can be 

The person that you want to see.

Lovely and learned. Very uplifting and hopeful - succinct with just the right amount of words to express your point so eloquently. Thank you for sharing this. I am reminded of a quote by Mozart wherein he said, 'To talk well and eloquently is a very great art but to know the right moment to stop is an even greater one.'

You have succeded.
Light,

Its a natural effect of life to question - so few people do!

Your poem makes me think about religion and faith, and I wonder if this poem is about questioning the truth of religion. What does one do if "glory" comes knocking on your door? Great poem to make one think.

Interesting piece. It can be quite scary to see the other side of the mirror. It can be kinda Duja Ve.
