The Three Keys of Life
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Two keys divide the music we sound
With our instruments, but three open
The channel to the music we make
With our lives, minor, major, senior.
In major, 'j' for joyous, we often sing
The songs of childhood as they are
Remembered. We forget the minor key
Of feeling torn apart with yearning
For what we could not do. How happily
We embrace the age of majority!
Then we get the rude awakening.
Sometimes we still feel like children,
Longing to do what we can not.
We can't stop all melodies in minor.
Now come the discords, minor and major
At once, very painful and sad, yet also,
On the other hand, very happy, and the war.
Finally the minor sword gets broken,
Because Hope does not come to its aid.
Hopelessly dull is the blade trying to sever
What cannot be.
Three's a charm.
The third key works magic like a wand,
With the wisdom it wields, whose command
Belongs to you with maturity within, and,
As one gate closes, another is opened.
The third key is yours when you know,
Being able need not mean to do so,
But rather opening the gate to the right path.
