Suddenly
it changed
One door closed
and
another one opened wide
As far as the eye could see
Although, it took
a long time,
when it happened,
it felt like
I’d woken
from a deep slumber
I felt
lighter, brighter
and
ready —
Maybe, for the
first time ever!

Below is a poem I wrote exactly one year ago, it’s called Closed Doors. It was in response to a prompt by Diana C. in Know Thyself Heal Thyself.

How can you learn to appreciate closed doors just as much as you celebrate doors the Universe has opened?

At that time, I had to accept the closed doors. It’s interesting they are opening now, one year on. I had to wait and yet, looking back now, I can honestly say it did me no harm.

If we are patient and wait with expectation, God will deliver us from our distresses and bring us into a new place.
