About This Poem


The keyhole holds entry to the soul
A vision you may be sorry to view
Be careful where you place your eyes
Because someone may be watching you.

To be the spy in others business
May bring you down to your lowest plain
But to be observed doing the deed
Will give you pause on snooping again

A well kept secret you could be spoiling
Or a lovers tryst that you need not see
A private meeting or a gift being wrapped
All because someone took out the key

A scene of which you are not involved
Is not your business and not your call
To hurt someone for no good reason
You must leave now or take the fall.

    Betty, a very inspirational poem all the way through... snooping into other's private affairs and revealing those secrets can bring hurtful consequences. Love the way you expressed your theme :)
