Soul in Travail

Soul in Anguish, Soul in torment, Soul in delirium, Soul in pain, Soul in ecstasy, Soul in anxiety, Soul in frustration, Soul in disdain. Soul in passion, Soul in laughter, Soul in death and Soul in life. Soul in penitence, Soul in reflection, Soul in love and Soul in strife. Oh my soul you Keep me dancing. I can never Dance alone. I search for my Soul’s companion. Who will offer? Is there one? Here are now my Suitors willing. There is Envy, Look at Hate, Bitterness and Self-Absorption, Pity looking For a date. What of Vengeance Narcissism, Self-indulgence Dressed up fine, Pride and Guilt with Sad Depression, Desperation, What a line! I have danced with Every suitor. And I’ve wondered Who is mine. I don’t want to Lock into a Partnership that Doesn’t shine. All of these have Looked attractive. Yet they weaken On the spins! Where is one that Lasts for ever? I will only Look at him. I need one who Will not fail me, Leave me when the Going’s tough, One who’s strong and Knows the dance steps. Treading on my Toes is rough! Something deep Within me tells me Suitors there are More than enough, I must search the Highest mountain For the one whose Name is Truth. Mr.Truth will Undergird my Weakness, lift My spirits high. Warm my coldness, Light my darkness, Hold my trust as He draws nigh. . He will lead me Without falter To a banquet Richly spread. I will follow Every dance step Waiting for the Day we wed. Then for ever All those suitors And their lies will Disappear. There will only Be the glory Of beloved Jesus here.
