Doors And Gates

Doors and gates
Walls and fences
The occassional moat
Obstacles encountered
Along the path
Some strong and forbidding
Others collapsing of themselves
Some easily surmounted
Others seeming unassailable
The progress and measure
Of our journey taken not
By the blockades we meet
But in how we meet them
