Incense drifting 'cross your brain
left alone without a name.
Lost, no hope, within your mind
Stumbling through life so blind.

Paths of life can be so stark
if you wander in the dark.
Pointless is your direction
as you journey to perfection.

The evilness that possesses you
makes those lies sound so true.
Makes them dance across the page
slams you down in mortal rage.

You know this life is nowhere
you're alone with nothing to share.
But there is a way to get free
and it only takes one key.

There's one thing you should know
before that grand door you go.
You must admit that this is it
making up your mind you'll quit.

Know the evil will lie in wait
as you work to make things straight.
Sin will come to you so quick
Gives you pain making you sick.

You say why should I repent
I've fallen down, my back is bent.
In suddenness a whisper came
it was a calling out your name.

The Holy Father of all that is
Has came to gather what is His.
He gave you strength so you won't sin
through the door He's entered in.

When you were struggling unaware
God watched to see if you did care.
He'll lift the burdens and sets you free
Help you be all you can be.

You passed the test, welcome home
you'll no longer be alone.
The souls of all gather 'round to see
The life you created with that key.

Forgiveness comes shining through
reflected in the things you do.
God will stand by you now
with patience He will teach you how.

He will gather 'round you friends
your rebirth with love He blends.
You've knocked it opens you're finally free.
All it took was just one key.

Great job. I especially liked the line about God watching the person - because He always does.

I enjoyed the progression of your poem. Good job.

I think you have quite the knack for writing powerful poems. I could feel the MC traveling through the dark and then the joy that was felt when she finally saw the light. I did notice that you switch from the past tense to the present and back to the past again. Other than that I think you did a splendid job and that this piece will touch many hearts.
