ever a door

there is ever a door
ahead, open
or closed, asking
what will we do here?

will we stand, stubborn
afraid to knock
or touch, or push

will we crawl under, squeeze
through, jump high
hurdling over

will we peek through
and uncertain
turn to face another door
another time, another place
there is ever a door ahead

Strive to enter by the narrow door
[force yourselves through it], 
for many, I tell you, will try to enter 
and will not be able.
