Two Doors

 

Two Doors

I spent much of my life
by the swinging doors
yearning for a glimpse
of what will come after
and what came before.
 
Saw eternity
in a newborn’s face
and supreme fulfillment
in a fresh corpse’s gaze;
Which was more lovely
and transcendent
I cannot say.
 
But somewhere along
the way I learned
the present matters
most—and this
is where I resolved
to stay.
 
Later, summoned back
to the swinging door,
I realize we are
so much more
than these bodies
that carry us through
time and space
So let’s live more
courageously,
playfully,
magnificently
here, in between
the two doors.
