Next to My Heart

Next to my heart I keep
a key to unlock many doors
One that allows access to hope
and strength, faith, and desire

When the pathway to hope is clear
there is an endless journey ahead of you
Strength ebbs and flows 
depending on what we encounter along our way
Behind the door of faith are many windows
we can see so many, yet only one may be clear

I hope to always carry with me
the desired key
Without it I have no hope, strength, or faith to go on

For the Contest:  "I Carry With Me"
