Conversation With the Soul

Once upon a midnight dream Of fantasy in flight I fought the degradation Of a dragon’s appetite My heart was beating stronger As it broke my fevered brow Breaking my resistance To the meekness of a bow All my dreams of darkness Were the dungeons of my soul The sad and somber wreckage Of a savage in control Soul, I cried, refuse me In the pattern of my sin Help me to be stronger In my struggle for a win Favor me with courage In the carnage of my fight Clear my path of passage In a prefatory light Strengthen my compassion For the suffering I see Flip the side of sorrow For a joyful jamboree Teach me thy persistence In the moments I am weak Nurture me with patience For the blessings that I seek Hasten thy forgiveness In the mercy of thy way Chasten my resistance To the truth I must obey Set me on a higher plane To lift the needy poor Raise me on the ladder Of the blessings you restore Teach me of the promise And the purpose of a man Lead me in the practice Of a wiser master plan Help me to be humble On the highest mountain peak Catch me when I stumble In the knowledge that I seek Thank you, soul, for teaching me The truth about my quest Strengthen my conviction To be equal to the test.
