A door is unlocked and opened
And my life changes without my consent
Or so it seems
How can I forget
That I sent the invitation -
That I gave the key for that lock?

A door is slammed shut in my face
And my whole being is affected
I know it is
How soon I have forgotten
That I helped to slam the door
And that no one exited but me!

In life doors open and close
With our hand on every handle
Entering and exiting all the time
Sometimes doors are closed
Sometimes doors are opened
Sometimes all, sometimes a few,
But never all by themselves
