Soup Tribute

Thanks for letting me have a peek in to your heart and soul
For being the one who let it all flow
The poetic river,which leads out to the great sea of Soup writers
All the things you reveal..for me to learn and consume

You have shown me how to write in the present moment
Purified spirits,darkened souls
We all gather in this mayhem,cleansed from troubled times
Sometimes unleashes desires and lust,forbidden thoughts and acts

Entwine my soul around your spirit
Breathe and grow into eachother we do
Scattered emotions brought together
Heartfelt,purified,healed by the unity
The sencere feeling of belonging
Humble words,Big world

    been here over three years. and have found great friends. also had to experience my greatest loss with my friends here. stuff i could'nt tell anyone here where i live. i must have made many a tear to fall with my grief. but in the end it healed me. and when you need it; it will heal you too. john
