Inexorable Reduction

Inexorable Reduction

A Poem by Ted Lambert

If you're in a depressed mood, DO NOT read this.......


Inexorable Reduction

For every door that closes
Some say two open.
I say every portal one
Survives renders
one less possible choice
and chance to make things better.

A person's greatest potential
Arrives at the moment of birth;
After that red, brightly painted
Event, doors begin closing.

Life is but an irrevocable and
inexorable series of potential-decreasing
events, each extracting its
toll, dwindling decision by decision
inexorably to everyones' end-state of zero.

In a way, I think you're right. As our lives progress we are shown that doors to dreams are closed often before we start knocking.
