Soul Deep

  • Into the depths of my Soul I must go
  • Because life in the shallows is too much of a broadway show

 

  • In my Soul is where my treasure lies
  • And all the answers to life’s perplexing ties

 

  • The journey into the deep is not for the faint hearted 
  • As it will reveal all your ego’s perverted targets 

 

  • Then you must choose from all your idols 
  • Which ones to keep and which to bridle 

 

  • No one is so pure as to have no earthly clings
  • For it is in rings and things that make us queens and kings

 

  • But the deeper into my Soul I explore 
  • I discover that too many a trappings do not let my Spirit soar

 

  • The world tells me to spend spend spend, buy this and have that
  • For it is only then that I will be an aristocrat

 

  • But the more I buy the more weighted down I feel
  • For it is in Asceticism and Simplicity that my Soul is revealed 

 

  • Then one comes to that dreadful or liberating place
  • Where one has to choose what will be in the foremost space

 

  • It is at this juncture and on these scales 
  • That one discovers if one’s Soul is truly for sale 

 

  • Will it be the noise of the trophies, the glitter of the golden calves, and the much polished toys 
  • Or, 
  • Will it be the quiet whisperings of one’s Soul’s simple joys 

 

  • Judge not harshly, neither way is right or wrong 
  • For it is in the expense, expenditure, and experience of both that one discover’s their Soul’s song

 

  • “But as for me and my house”, this I know
  • The Flow of my Soul is what makes me aglow
