Through The Green Glass Door

I see you have come to the Green Glass Door.
But you should not take one step more.
You see there are only certain things that can go through.
I'm not so heartless, I will tell you.
Behind the Green Glass Door you will find grass but no lawn.
The lights can be off, but they cannot be on.
Through the Green Glass Door you can find a walls and a floor.
But there is not a ceiling behind the special Door.
You cannot go through but neither can I.
She can not go through and we will only pass by.
Behind the Green Glass Door there can't be Heaven but there can be Hell.
But behind here one can do well.
Through evil cannot pass,
Into this world of pretty Green Glass.
Right nor wrong can make the Door budge,
Only correct and incorrect can be the judge.
Love can not wander in this land.
Hate and prejudice must aslo stand
Outside the world of the Green Glass Door.
But there is so much more
That can pass
Through this Door made of Green Glass.
Behind the Green Glass Door one cannot be alive,
You aren't welcome to try and strive.
But food can go through the Green Glass Door,
Are you even listening any more?
Now that you know what can pass,
Through this Door made of Green Glass-
What you don't understand the law?
Need I explain it all?
Go back look and see
What I explained to be
The things that can go into the Green Glass Door
I will not tell you any more
Try to see if you can come up with anything
That the Green Glass Door will be allowing
To enter its sacred territory
See if you can try to top me.

Don't worry, once enough people comment admitting that they can't figure it out, I WILL post the answer! I know how it feels to not be able to figure the Green Glass Door out because I learned this at summer camp and I couldn't figure it out for my life! But I finally did and wrote this poem!
PS- Summer camp can go through the Green Glass Door!
