You are the keeper of the keys

You are the keeper of the keys.
You are the guard at the gate.
Waiting in line to get through that door
is Love, and also Hate.
In line to enter is Gentle Peace.
and also Violent War.
You must choose who may, and who
may not come through the door.
Intolerance rises to sneak through
on wings of Fear, or Pride.
It hides behind Dreams of Belonging,
and tries to sneak inside.
Oh! Be Alert! You’re the Guard who decides
who Goes and who may Stay.
You are the keeper for the keys to your mind.
Who will you let in today?
