Trapped Souls


[Baut Images: Soul Flight]

She says, "I want my freedom!"
He says, "You can never be truly free."
She says, "That's not true."
He says, "Yes, it is."
She says, "What do you mean?"
He says, "Youre a soul trapped inside a physical body."
She says, "You're crazy!"

He says, "Am I now?"

Dance.
Dance the dance.
Dance the dance of the soul.

We've been dancing since time began,
And it's so very long ago,
That now we've forgotten.

We've forgotten who we are,
Simply, souls dancing,
Dancing through time and space.

We've forgotten we were
To be caretakers of this sacred place,
And keepers of divine grace.

Now, we must wake-up.
Wake-up soon, before it's too late,
And perhaps change our disastrous fate.

Dance the dance of the soul.
Dance the dance.
Dance.


She says, "Yes, you are!"
He says, "When you leave the physical you're truly free."
She says, "How's that?"
He says, "These shells we live in are only temporary."
She says, "What have you been smoking?"
He says, "Not smoking, waking-up!"
She says, "I don't want to wake-up!"
He says, "Go deep, deep inside, and r-e-m-e-m-b-e-r..."

  3. Very unusual form or just out of the norm of what I am used to reading but I'm glad I did. I love the repetition of "We've forgotten who we are" It's a lovely message and sentiment.

  4. Hi Pam! Nice to have you stop by and leave your thoughts! Well, I'd tend to agree with you this is a bit of an unusual form. I keep shifting things a bit, as my intuition tells me, and the 'triplet' itself is rather out of the ordinary.

    Glad you enjoyed the message and sentiment!

  6. Roger- I really enjoyed the twist there in the middle and the change of attitude at the end. This really spoke to me:

    We've forgotten we were
    To be caretakers of this sacred place,
    And keepers of divine grace.

  8. Don't know if your header photo is actually meant to go with this poem but it definitely conveys a feeling of trees trapped in a hostile world...your logic is impeccable here, Roger, and grace is flowing freely. Enjoyed it much.
