Open Mind

It’s time to open
the door and see
something more.
There’s so much
on the other side –
a place where
the sun shines.
A closed mind
leaves one blind
to the beauty
others offer.
Be someone
who minds.
Don’t be captive
to old thoughts –
to old lessons
still being taught.
The open mind
has endless time;
It creates boxes
without lines.
To open up
means to live
without worry.
To close down
means to stay
in a place
far away.
It’s time to
open the mind.
It’s time
I open mine.
