Validation Of A Soul

validation of your heart
might be approved..
thrown to the wolfs
tossed around,devoured..

soul not defined
thrown into the wind..
validated after crashlanding
approval unheard of..

    What a very interesting way to look into the "validation of a soul"-- I really like this one Arild and for me, the blows in our lives--how we stand up after those can be very fitting tests for us. Wonderful write Arild, and thank you for passing by my poems with your heartwarming comments-- also means a lot to me :D-- and I hope you have a great vacation coming up :D hugs back :D
