Either You

Either you will
go through this door
or you will not go through.

If you go through
there is always the risk
of remembering your name.

Things look at you doubly
and you must look back
and let them happen.

If you do not go through
it is possible
to live worthily.

To maintain your attitudes
to hold your position
to die bravely.

But much will blind you
much will evade you.
At what cost who knows?

The door itself
makes no promises
it is only a door.

~ Adrienne Rich ~
