this Skeleton Key,
has so much potential to move us Forward,
to unlock the places we Need to go,
but like its name suggests,
it is slowly deteriorating.
Its shiny and smooth metal,
is Rusting and Flaking Away,
revealing nothing more,
than Broken and blanched white bone,
that tried to Hide beneath layers of iron.
It is what hinders us.
It is an ancient past,
that wants to Live again.
But broken bones can be Splinted and Mended,
and keys can be Reforged,
and we Can move on through New doors.
