Thursday Photo Prompt. Gate. #writephoto

This is part of Sue Vincent‘s photo prompt challenge. 

Rules and Pingback here


Why do they sit and guard at the gates, what are the horrors that they await?

Why do they guard the portal, why do they never sleep what is it they guard why is this their fate.

Why for millenniums have they stood by their posts

Why, …… is it to save us from aliens or ungodly hosts?


What are they protecting us from, what fiendish hell are they shutting out

What is it fighting to get in and attack this world and wipe it all out!?

What is the secret they keep , what would happen if they open the portal for us to take a peek.

What is the horrible truth that they keep , are you ready to hear and face the words that I speak.


It is not us they are saving, is it not us they protect , 

 NO! It is all the other dimensions and  worlds across the threshold …… they will not let us infect!

It is shocking  and fearful for us to be told

It is us that we are the evil from all other worlds and dimensions they must withhold!!

    Hmmm, I often consider things as the opposite of most. For instance many insist that those tall steel transmission towers are held up by guy wires. Personally I think the towers are left by aliens and are being held down by the wires or they would soar off into space.

    Yes… we do assume the opposite, don’t we? Nicely done
