The Key

You waste your days
Wishing for more
Wondering what's happened with your life
Why wont it get  any better?

All the empty promises
All the failures
You can't seem to escape
From the hole you dug

Faith is expensive
Friends can let you down
Love is impossible
Because you're blinded by pain

These golden moments
Become tarnished and faded
The clear memories
Become fuzzy and dim

Where has life put you?
Struggling to break free
of these cold steel chains
That have trapped you in darkness

And then you find the key
One thing that brings light into the shadows
The weight you struggled with
Has suddenly become a lot lighter

One person holds this key
And light in his eyes
Brightens your world
You can see now

Pull yourself out of the hole
Get out of the darkness
He wants you to stand in the sunlight
and love him like he loves you.

    Lovely indeed..God is the key to everything..Such a beautifully written poem with a profound message...He doesn't want us buried in a hole or standing in darkness because he has great plans for all of us. Take all your burdens to the Lord and leave them there..He is the only one that can open and close doors in our lives...~Beautiful~God Bless *Tyesha
