Your Enemy

If you are afraid to open the door to the kingdom

The kingdom is there

the kingdom has always been there
and will always be there

but there are those who know of it
and those that live in it
not many

and then there are those who have forgotten it exists
or look to the kingdom as the enemy
of their peace

if you are afraid to open the door to the kingdom
you will soon bend and crumple the memory
-what was once steel-
into a tinfoil ball
it will not be recycled
it will not be forgotten
but it will be crumpled and look only like a ball of tinfoil
no more inspiring that that

if you are afraid to open the gates to the kingdom
you will turn your knowledge of it
to waste
to your enemy
and you will live your life
like the kingdom
is your enemy.
