Door to the Unknown


Some said that behind the door
lies happiness
some said pain
others said that there is nothing at all

I always thought that it doesn't really matter
what lies behind the door
What really matters
is what's here in the now

Then last year
Grandma
went behind the door
And I understood why people wondered
because I did too

I try not to think
about what lies beyond the door
It is easier that way
less painful
But maybe
like everyone else
I'm just scared of the unknown,
of the day
when I'll have to go
behind the door
