The power of a key

Isn’t it funny how keys play such an important part of our life. I mean have you ever thought about it?
 

They open doors, windows, safes, cars and some would say they open hearts, memories  and minds too. It’s not just opening though. It’s closing, securing and keeping it that way. 

Imagine that. Imagine how different things would be if an actual physical key was needed to access memories, hearts and minds?  Maybe even a different key to each of those things. I can tell you one thing for sure – the key to my memories would have been thrown away a long long time ago. Imagine that. That may have been the key and the answer to a happier life, locking away all the sh*t that haunts me everyday and night. The rubbish that I can’t let go of. It influences and affects me daily. Always makes me wonder if I will ever be free of it all. I work so hard to understand it and to work through it. I work so hard to try and understand why I react the way I do. I’ve had years of various therapy and the last lot was the closest I’ve gotten to starting to pull the jumbled mess apart. Strand by strand. But it always has to come to an end somewhere. Sometimes the start it not quite enough.

Imagine your current key ring, with your door key, perhaps a car key and maybe a key to work. Now imagine it with a key to your heart, a key to your mind and memories. Would you change the locks and make them all the same? How about allowing others entry and cutting those keys to give to a select few – the selection is up to you. You don’t have to worry about your emotions or your mouth giving things away that you don’t want to.

There’s another key. A key to emotions – ha – I wish I had one of those. It just shows how many things could be controlled by key access. But what is a key exactly? ‘A small metal object’ I hear you say. Does it have to be? How about a code or fingerprint that can be added and removed as needed. 

Anything that could unlock and open the secure closure. If only so simply implemented.
