2010 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 1

Closing the Door or Turning the Page

The only way to know
The door will remain closed
Or the page will remain unturned,
Is death itself,
And even so...
Memory may dredge up what
Is forgotten
Throw it down before you,
For another inspection.

That is life and as Isak Denison
Says, "We must tell the story
To ourselves, over and over until
We can at last..."
Quietly close the door,
Or tenderly turn the page.
