Love is that key

Love is that key, which in innumerable guises
Unlocks the mysteries and beauties of life,
Be it in Holland or Poland, Pakistan or Rajasthan.

Love flies with the wings of Truth,
Propelled by the winds of change,
Exerting a powerful influence on beautiful minds.

The frozen straits of epiphany,
The riddles of existence, the hidden secrets
Are all unlocked by the key of love.

The recipients of great literary accolades,
The poised and savvy thinkers and philosophers,
The brilliant minds of our generation,
The natural code breakers and the mystic
Who push their minds beyond limits,
All know about the power of this key.

The unforgiving mind, the selfish mind,
Always inclined to hurt others by words or actions
Will never find the key of love.
For them, it will be like the proverbial
Search of the needle in the haystack.

Love is that key, which, with consummate skill
Can bend History in the direction of justice,
Change the hearts of most hardened cynics,
Dissipate those clouds which fuel conflicts,
Make minarets sway and church spires glisten
While the whole world gets suffused with peace,
A stimulating gaiety spreads around
And a magical smile plays on all lips.

    On the whole an engaging and contemplative work that makes use of uplifting tropes.
    However, the succinct opening stanzas become increasingly elongated and verge unnecessarily on the didactic.
