The Skeleton Key...

The Skeleton Key...

A Poem by Jamestown
"

Unlock your hearts...

"
The Skeleton Key...

If you had a skeleton key and this key could unlock
any door, safe or vault,

What lock in your life would you use it on?

My guess would be the majority of the world would use
the key to to crack open a safe or vault, because the majority
of this selfish and greedy world believes that wealth would
buy them happiness,

Now don't get me wrong, becoming wealthy is much
to desire, but money can't buy love and when you die
you can't take it with you,

I believe that love is the key to happiness and true love,
I believe if your heart is made of gold then you are
plenty wealthy, spiritual wealth is the key to Gods bank
and love will open any meaningful vault,

By the way, you can take a golden heart with you when you die
to heaven and it will match the streets,

So let me ask you, who needs a skeleton key
If a golden heart overflowing with love is the key
to this life and eternal life?

If I had a skeleton key I would unlock your
hearts and minds to this idea...

Jamestown,
"The skeleton key" the very title speaks to the wide range of gifts and uses we possess but how do we use them? Humanity with all our differences share the one great God given imprint which is to love and be loved. Interesting that this is just part of our make up. Why? Because we are beings formed to be loved. We are lost if not loved. So much healing happens when people discover that Jesus is waiting for them to just turn around and say, " Jesus save me. I am so lost. "If I had a skeleton key I would unlock your heart and mind to this idea.........

Certainly, those last two lines express the most laudable of goals.
This poem is a charming, well-articulated representation of solid Christian values.
Another inspired piece of work, J!

I must tell you that I have read many of your poems even though I haven't always left a review because your work is always so well received. You an intelligent and talented wordsmith which shows in all your work, now enough patting you on the back :) This is my favorite so far, if fact I just might have to swipe your idea and write my one poem. Thanks for sharing and inspiring me and others.

I like your poem and it is true. Our true value lies in the love we have in our hearts. And when our hearts are full of love it overflows to encompass all. GOD IS LOVE
