We give little thought
to our coming and going
a simple passage
through an open door

Yet each transition
each close and open
brings us closer
to who we mean to be

Time slips by
water rushing through our hands
and we must choose
the doorway that comes next

Forgiving the hours
we spent at all that was closed to us
and stepping bravely
into the future we seek – Caroline A. Slee
