Poem: "Doors Opened...Singer Sang!" by Rich Orth

Doors Opened...Singer Sang!
©Rich Orth

Longing to live life fast
Sometimes life throws a curve
Not always bulletproof
Oftimes the car won't swerve

Nine lives vanish in a moment
One, two, three, ten
Here today...gone tomorrow
As truth descends

Into darkest days
Yet brightest vision
Through eyes of youth
Through truthful decision

Through a child's eye
This child became an adult
Woke from nightmares plagued
To mysteries so vague

To the beat of a different drum
This singer sang...
song he wanted to hear
New life began...
as eyes opened to what is dear...

Dedicated to Dan O'Brien, lifelong friend and Brother
