A body can be beaten and bruised,
but it will heal in time.
A heart can be torn and broken,
but it will mend with help.
A mind can be manipulated,
pushed past its boundaries
never knowing if it will return.
This leaves your soul.
The essence of who you are,
it can not be taken or damaged,
it can not be lost or destroyed,
it reminds you of who you are,
it keeps you where you want to be.
But do not ignore it, pay attention
because its energy does lack.
Listen to your soul every day,
it will show you the way forward,
as long as you stop looking back.
