What is it?
What does it do?
Why is it needed?
Does everyone
need one?

Does it matter
what it is composed of?
Be it metal, wood or
just plain and
simple pottery?

In size is it miniscule,
middling or explosisvely
gargantuan?

Has it any need of
ornamentation?
Such as precious jewels,
exquisite tracery, enamel work
or shimmering beads.

Will having it improve
our daily lives?
Or is it just one more
chachka to add to
our possessions?

Is it a person, place
Or thing?

It does come in many
sizes, colors and shapes.
From finger-sized to
Six-feet long and three
feet wide.

Over the centuries it
has had many uses from
unlocking the tiniest
jewelry chest, manor safes
and the gates to the
long-lost city.

In this present age it is
used to secure –
homes, motor vehicles, hotels
, motels, workplaces, churches
, synagogues, mosques, bank
vaults, hospitals, schoolrooms
grocery stores, libraries, gymnasia
riding stables, buses, trains, planes,
and sometimes even
lovelorn hearts.

In the simplest of terms it
is known as a key.

However, there is one place
in the whole, wide universe
that it is not called for or required –
For in heaven there are no
material keys required.

Jesus bids us to hear his voice
and open the door
to eternal life
with Him.

Revelation 3:20 (KJV)
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him and he with me.”

I really enjoyed this piece. In its simplicity, I found a depth that really touched my heart. I did notice some of the commas where in the wrong place. Always hit preview before you hit submit. It will show you what your piece will look like to the reader. A nice trick is don't fill in the level spot u til you are ready to submit your piece because this will prevent you from hitting submit accidentally. I think you did a lovely job of covering the topic and your words touched my heart and I'm sure many others as well. Good job.

Very clever indeed... This was a really very creative poem; it flowed well and the lines just built upon one another. You covered everything one could possibly think of concerning key in this one poem, Well done! The only thing I didn't get, and maybe it was just me, but your line on "Is it person, place or thing? I didn't get that but other than that, I thought your poem was a little stroke of genius. Blessings...
