Soul Speaking

I'm the secret that you keep
from those who think
they know you best
Awake and then asleep
I drift through endless days
unknown to most
while your habits
and your daily structure
built to keep me out
only serve as prison bars
that keep you in

Why do you fear me so?
I am your soul

I am the poetry you write
on rare occasion
I am emotion that you try
so hard to quell
then will you sell your very soul
for the illusion of a happiness
that never dwells within
when your true responsibility
is to set your spirit free

Why do you fear me so?
I am your soul

You claim to love
in moments of desire
then do all you can to dampen
inner fires of your release
and wonder why you cannot find
the illusive peace of mind you crave
but your complex lies
won't save you from yourself
for I am here although ignored
I open each and every door
even as you turn your back
and walk away

Why do you fear me so?
I am your soul

I am each step you never took
I am the silent, unread book
I am the seed's potential
early in the spring
when the feel of love can bring
you oh so close
I am the best, I am the most
that you can be
I'll share the secrets of eternity
with you

Why do you fear me so?
I am your soul

I am an endless burning fire
seeking air that I might be
a vital source of your reality
I am the voice that you refuse to hear
ringing in your inner ear
White noise put into words
you should have heard
I am the opportunity you never took
I am the tremors deep within that shook
your being to the very core
I am all of this and more

Why do you fear me so?
I am your soul

I am the static in the atmosphere
as night draws oh so near
I am the thunder and the rain
releasing pain
I am the tears you seldom cry
the answer to the question why
you drift through endless days of misery
for tell me this, what can life be
without a soul?

Why do you fear me so?
I am your soul

I am the voice that calls your name
upon the winds - I won't be tamed
I am the worth, the value
only found within
I am the echo ringing out
the roar of waves that scream and shout
in endless variation of the tone
that let's you know you're not alone
I am that sweet and haunting melody
that sings through all eternity for you

Why do you fear me so?
I am your soul.
