Sketch for the day was to the tune of keys, but I also found a poem that I liked...

You are the keeper of the keys
You are the guard at the gate
Waiting in line to go 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 tries to sneak on 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 of the keys to your mind.
Who will you let in today?

Perfect poem for your sketch! Have you ever thought of submitting any of your journals for publishing? Stampington and Company (I think) has an ongoing call right now for journals to be published. Something to think about, if you haven't already. :)
