The spirit has started crying out and the soul is in distress
Too many active moments have left the heart in emptiness
Slow down your fragile being and be still within your mind
For silence wants to speak to you of mysteries you can find.
It is not a true necessity a must have on your list
To risk your inner happiness for some fabricated bliss
For everything that is tangible and created for a time
Can pass away so quickly and leave you searching for some rhyme.
There's nothing more invaluable more priceless than the soul
Yet too often we have gambled it for some hint of higher role
How quickly we discover that all the glow of promising fame
Can only bring a luster that is so degrading to our name.
