Poetry: “The gate”

Going through old photos, being inspired anew.

The gate

Famously you stand
Facing east and west
Crossroads old
Centuries
A history full of trials

Intentions shift with time
First harbinger of peace
Then with turmoil
Many wars
Has changed your attitude

A symbol undeniable
So claimed by many men
Good and bad
So you stood
Ever silent watching on

A very old survivor
None really tore you down
The people love you
In your home
They walk and party in your shade
