The Soul’s Dream
The sould it dwelleth deep within,
A unique well structured creation.
Using only spiritual strength for its strong foundation
The Soul it longeth to be free,
To soar and explore what is yet to be.
Compelled and driven it ventures forth,
With infinite purpose it stays on course.
When alas it finds its destiny,
The soul is released and peacefully freed.
