What if something really tempting and seemingly promising arrives at your door? Maybe the last time it happened you might have been hurt. Will it be worth it to accept it in again? Is your happiness really worth the price?

What if happiness comes knocking at my door?

Not today, but maybe someday,

Should i invite him in?

Because i know i’m scared.

When i’m not looking,

What if he steals from my home,

What if he hides them in his robes,

What if he breaks things around, all because i let him in, again.

What if he decides he is done with this place,

Wretched it enough,

Decides to leave out of the front door he entered?

Leaving me behind wanting more like a fool, again.

Cursing myself for letting this happen, again.

I resolve to regret less, to be hurt less, to care less, to be scared less.

These are my walls, and i built them high.

And there is that knock again, that deceitful thief.

Not this time, my old friend,

I wont let you in.
