The Lost Soul

There is a lost soul,that 
hides deep within me,
it struggles and is wanting
to just be set free.

If it could only find the courage
and strength to come out and play,
God only knows just what it would say.

The lost soul within 
truly has a big heart,
it wants to beg for
forgiveness,but hasn't
a clue where to start.

Everyday is a battle and 
it wonders should I stop trying,
It has so many bad thoughts,
and spends alot of time crying.

Why can't this lost soul
just break free from it's shell,
it wants nothing more than
to escape from this HELL.

                                 Colleen Marie Bono

    Wonderful write Colleen, and you keep fighting--as Dylan Thomas wrote "Do not go gentle into that good night, rage rage against the dying of the light"

    Great insight Colleen. Many Souls are lost in the wilderness of self that the mind as created as their lives. Thankfully our pass over(Christ) has also been sacrifices for reconcellation to help the soul find it's way back to it's heart. Thanks for sharing this awesome write. Sincerely, Love, Moses
