A Soul Cries

A soul cries yet nobody hears him They say he has neither a head nor limbs But he has a soul and a spirit Undesirable is the soul to be taken from the womb A soul cries yet nobody hears him His voice is so mild that no one can hear him He’s damned for a crime he didn’t commit No supplication and inspiration to share A soul still cries yet nobody hears him He has neither words nor songs to hymn He’s languishing from a lashing whip A victim to hatred, dubiety and immorality A soul cries yet nobody seems to care He pleas for his precious life to be spared Yet with a mild voice no one will give an ear With despair he cries and screams into the night A soul cries yet this girl has turned a deaf ear A voice tells her “eliminate him from here” But a master fate will sometimes have it to be The Dame escorted him six feet underground The Poet Preacher © 2014
