The Gates

by Ike E.


I came to a road

It had a gate

The gate was open

I went down the road

It was straight and smooth

A ways down the road

There was another gate

A sign said

You must take the other road

Why, I asked

You are crippled

I didn’t know I was crippled

The road was rough and I fell a lot

I came to another gate

It was open

I went through the gate

The road was smooth and straight

I smiled

It was good for a while

Until I came upon another gate

A sign said

You can’t go any further

Why, I asked

You can’t read

I sat down

And cried

Then I thought

I can read

I got up

And disappeared

Down the road
