Door - I

I was here indeed
to frame a door
but while doing so
became a door myself.

Poets
painters
singers and musicians
teachers
media men
thinkers
and a host of others
just went in
and ushered themselves
to their respective places.

But I, the maker of the door
could not go in or out
I had become the door
a thing paralyzed.
