What is the Soul, have you ever thought?
Or is it a mystery in which you are caught?
We all have a Soul, we seem to know
Let's realize the truth before it is time to go
It is the Soul that makes me live
But, is it the one that makes me forgive?
What is the function of the Soul?
What does it do to make me whole?
Body, mind, heart and Soul
Each has a specific role
The body moves and the mind does think
The heart beats, and the Soul? I blink
I have been taught that the Soul's in me
It makes me who I am meant to be
It is with me when I live, till I die
And then, I am told, it flies in the sky
Where does the Soul go and how? I wonder
It goes to heaven, how? I ponder
Everybody says, “We have a Soul”
To search for it is now my goal
My eyes and nose I can touch and feel
My mind, it wanders, my peace it does steal
Aha! Now I know what my Soul does do
It gives me life, I have got the clue
The Soul is a power that gives me breath
Without the Soul, there would be death
It comes to me just as I am born
And it leaves me when life is gone
Without the Soul, I would be dead
I wouldn't talk, wouldn't eat bread
My Soul is alive in every cell
It makes me pray and ring the bell
The Soul is energy, it gives me power
It makes me grow tall like a tower
But once it leaves, I can't even bend
And my life story comes to an end
What is the Soul? I stopped to think
So many tales that make me blink
The truth by now I am sure I know
It is Divine Life that makes me glow
What is our life's ultimate goal?
To find the truth about the Soul
Before life is over, and it is time to die
We must find the truth, not in ignorance lie
Is my Soul different from yours? I think
I question and try to find the link
Just like there is one power source in my house, I know
That makes both gadgets work and the lights glow
And so, there is just one life source
It appears different, but it is one, of course!
It is energy that creates all life
In me, my parents, my kids, my wife
Not just in human beings it is
In animals and plants, it's also this
It is this Power that makes birds fly
And everything alive on earth and sky
What is this Power, the Soul that we call?
What is this Power that is alive in us all?
To discover the truth about the Soul
Is our life's Ultimate Goal
The Soul is not mortal, it is Divine
It is not yours, it is not mine
It is the Lord that lives in us
To realize this truth, we have missed the bus
