think of closed doors

like closed chapters

accept and empower

your desire to know

let natural curiosity prevail

and intellectual curiosity spawn discovery

peel back outmoded layers

untap new beginnings

one step at a time

“When the doors begin to close, the mind begins to open.”
― Curtis Tyrone Jones

Reena’s Xploration Challenge #229

The prompt line for this week is

“I have untapped abilities waiting to be discovered.”

If you find it complex, you can use Layers as a theme for your piece. I feel the two are inter-related.

    One needs to question again and again. Is it still relevant?

    1. Yes, we have to make the most of our time here on earth. We become too complacent with who and where we are.
