In order to search our souls;
Do not be incredulous;
Reject the words of fear, of hate,
And of prejudice.
Always seeking the light,
And mysteries held in darkness,
And too oft, we are captive
Held by our own harnesses.
So searching what’s inside our soul,
Where nirvana has no toll,
I found my soul was always there,
And like a friend who never left,
My beloved soul really never slept.
Each person has a journey overcoming words
That keep us from taking flight like birds.
I have found a truth within and gave my soul the time
To live and thrive uniquely by my own design.
As when we are one with self, we will know perfection
We can be at peace with our very soul’s protection.
"Acceptance of who we are and all we are, in which we find growth and self love."
