Behind Closed Doors, A Poem

More goes on behind closed doors

Than you shall ever know.

Yes, corruption and malfeasance

But that is not what I mean.

Behind closed doors,

An abused partner cries.

Behind closed doors

A child’s dream is denied,

Because Mommy got fired.

Behind closed doors

A young man cleans up his Grandmother’s urine

Just like she did for him

When he was a baby.

Behind closed doors

More goes on than you will ever know.

No one is God, no one sees it all.

So be kind.

No one can see

Behind closed doors.
