At the Gates

Can I enter


Aren’t I strong enough?

Aren’t I clever enough?


Can I come through


Haven’t I done enough

with my life?

Didn’t I please enough people?

Didn’t I make a name for myself?


Let me through


I did the best I could

The money was good


The money was God


I helped the company move forward

I did what was best for my family


Let me in


I am handsome

I am rich

I am all that which is good in this world

I am successful

I AM the alpha


Why won’t you let me in?
