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?
