growing up my soul.

my soul is here now
it loves me
i love it

it has been so broken
before; it has tried to
be a "good" soul 
but it aways breaks
because of me.

it tried to help me
to help or fix other
souls. " too much!" it 
said and,  finally just
ran away from me.

i said "soul" come back
to me!  i will just please
us, just for a day or two

without guilt, my smile 
was obviously convincing.

soul skipped back
and said  "i have been
waiting all my life
for you to say this!"

so my soul said to
say "NO" to things 
that did not suit me..

what a ruckus that
made.  everyone is
angry at me, not knowing
how my soul has saved

but, me and my soul
hold hands. i
say..."soul, i like 
how you think"

my soul reaches
up and pats my cheek
and says, "i am
so proud of you"

we sigh, as we look
at the stunning
