Border Dwelling Souls - Poem by David Lacey

Border dwelling souls bind their shackles to corporeal bodies
Without reason, for the rationality of the soul is split beyond
The whole in an act of insane treason. Spirit remains to guide
Our most divine and sacred aspects, Spirit remains to guide
Our hands and to teach us our respect of Mother as of Father,
Of earth as of sky, Spirit stays to teach us to think just as it teaches
Us to sigh.
