Two roads diverged in the woods and I,
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference


I stand outside this ordinary auburn door in disguise. From the baffling door I hear song. A ballad that awakens my soul. I begin to cry out of eccentric confused emotions.

I question the tranquil ginger door.
It gives me a familiar amusing sign.
Something is inside.
Something, I love, something I want,
My one and only desire.

I turn around and look at its intense immensity. So serene, undisturbed, unperturbed...

The curiosity almost kills me. As I say to myself “I think its time to start”. I escape to search for the key.

The Marine,
The cotton clouds,
The green wild corridors…Nowhere is the key.
I can’t take this anymore. Teardrops still flow…

Keeping my urge alive, I move my hands across the door.
It silently whispers to me. “You already have the key dear”.
My spirit recognisee this consecrated righteous voice.

“It’s me!”
I had it in me all this time. I put my hand inside my heart.
“Oh beautiful key, I adore your saintly wings”

The visions that I’ve dreamed, the commitment and the deed,
Finally realising that’s the key I need.
I say…
“Oh what a fool am I!!!”

Perseverance is the key,
Patience is the key,
Presence of the almighty Lord is the key…

The key is now in my hand and here is the door of success…
right here…right now…
Inside the lock here goes the key,
The Door of my Heaven…
The bliss,
The glory…


The author's comments:
We all want to be successful. But most of us just look for easy ways and shortcuts. That's never going to work. If you really want to turn your dreams into reality, you have to take chances and have infinite faith in the great Lord. So let’s begin by promising ourselves that we are ready to face this cruel world and not just shed tears and give up...so let the mission begin!

This was simply beautiful. There were traces of wisdom interlaced in the poetic words, and it was a joy to read. I cannot say much more. I'm grateful that I got the chance to read it...
