Take My Hand

by Jeffrey Parren

Open the door.
Break down that wall.

I'm coming in.

Give me that hand.
We'll do this together.

At times
the future can seem
so narrow.

A chosen path
though singularly directional
is alive with possibilities.

The future is a hallway
with many doors
all leading to
where you're
supposed to be going.

Sometimes the futures
of two people
become a hallway
made for two.

In this world
of instant gratification
many people rush
to combine futures
that just don't fit.

Perseverance and


They have
brought us here.

Will you
take my hand
as I will yours
walking through
those crumbling walls
and into a future
our very own?
