Keys to My Heart

Daily Prompt: Invitation

Keys to My Heart


I used to give the keys to my heart freely.

I thought no one would do me wrong, but they did,

tossing away my keys into the garbage

as soon as they were through them.


With tears in my eyes I rummaged through

the garbage and wiped off the crud off my keys. I then locked

those keys away, thinking everyone I met

just wanted to use them at their disposable.


Fortunately, people throughout my life from then on

shined a light on my darkened soul. I ran to where

I locked my keys and stopped cold…

“Do I really want to do this? What if I witness the same pain again?

But they have taken the time to shine their light on my life. They didn’t

need to, they chose to. And it’s not just any light, it’s a light I will

remember for a lifetime…”

I take the keys and shined them

and proudly presented them to the ones who took

the time to show me kindness in my despair.

In exchange, I was bestowed their keys

which I hang permanently in a special place in my heart.



Daily Prompt: Someday


Is it soon? Is it far away?

Will it come from convenience, motivation?

Can it be tomorrow, next month, years from now?

Whatever you say will happen someday

make sure that day comes.

Please don’t wait until it’s too late.

Schedule your “someday” you’ll be

happy you got whatever’s on your mind and heart completed.

Have no regrets!!!

Clinging to a Dream

Daily Prompt: Cling

Clinging to a dream

that many think won’t happen.

No matter how much faith I think they have

they encourage me to steer away from the

hopes of my heart.


But I won’t listen to them

With God all things are possible.

I asked Him if these dreams will pass

and He said “Yes,”

so I will stand on His word

and make His will my own.

I’ll follow Him for I know He’s always right.


I don’t blame the others for their lack of faith

for I used to have little faith too

and God didn’t tell or show them what He

told and showed me.


God will give us the desires of our hearts if we

delight ourselves in Him.

I delight myself in the Lord, I’m excited for

what else He’ll do in my life.

I’ll be patient and keep thanking Him

for bringing my dream to pass,

this is why I will cling to my dream

regardless of how far away it seems.


Until it happens I will gain knowledge and grow

in order to maintain this dream that is

forever locked in my heart.


Daily Prompt: Vanish

Looking in the mirror, displeased with the reflection

and who the reflection was, I broke it.

Constantly rearranging the pieces and breaking it

again to start all over.


Why won’t this person vanish? Why won’t she change for good?

The glass gets sharper and sharper, cutting me to the very bone.


Completely surrounded by bloody, sharp shards of glass

I get on my knees and weep.

A gentle but strong Hand strokes mine and heals the cuts I endured.

It raises the shards and wipes off the blood and fixes the mirror


It reaches out for my hand, I hesitantly take it.

I stand and look in the mirror.

I now see a person who is even better than I wanted to be.

Trail of Vigor

Daily Prompt: Vigor

Lying at the bottom

sharpened rocks add to the pain

I want to just lie here, for however long.

But the light above reminds me I can’t stay

no matter how comfortable I make this place.

I carefully stand and climb my out

cut by the rocks, blood is dripping from my flesh

leaving a wounding but proud trail of vigor.
