What Good Is a Window?

What good is a window 

 if there’s nothing to see 

no season of fall 

no drifting of leaves 

What good is a window 

if there’s only a wall. 

 

What good is a window 

if it’s sealed on all sides 

if it always stays closed 

by your heart or your pride 

What good is a window 

If you’re underexposed. 

 

What good is a window     

if it’s locked tight, secured 

or covered with drapes 

and your view is obscured 

What good is a window 

If there is no escape 

 

What good is a window 

if it’s not open wide 

to smile at skies blue 

to let fear subside 

So,

What good is a window? 

It let’s you climb through
