Free Your Soul - Poem by Dee Daffodil

To truly live
And cherish life
To feel every joy...
One needs to bare their soul
And relinquish all their fears

For a soul that lies in hiding
Cannot truly fly
Like a dove whose wings are clipped
It's left alone to die

When you can be so strong
To stand alone and say
'This is who I am
Take me or leave me
This is all I'll ever be'

Then you have bared your soul
For everyone to see
Then there is nothing left to hide
And your soul is truly free

    I don't normally give tens but it's hard to avoid them when someome imparts one
    of the truly great philosophies in such a succinct manner. Cheers for the
    philosopher queen.

    Oh yeah. This is how to say it. I've only got a few layers to go and it is the most liberated I've ever felt! I think I've discovered a side effect though - eccentricity!

    I agree with Francesca. Which is why I teach Yoga and meditation. The only way to reveal the soul is to surrender the ego (momentarily of course) and that can be very difficult. Yoga gives the whole being a focus and after a while allows the layers of the onion of illusion to be peeled away. And the process itself can be quite blissful too. A profound and thoughtful piece, Dee. love, Allie xxxx (Report)Reply

    A deep poem and probably very true. But it takes maturity and a great deal of courage to throw off those shackles and allow your soul to be bared...
    We are seeing a new style of writing here, Dee. Philosophical, deep. And thought-provoking.

    Love, Fran xxx

    Dee,
    All very true and well done! So, where is the guarantee ?
    You know, the one that says that everyone will love you after that ?
    Maybe, that could be the reason that so many still hide ?

    So well said Dee, too many times we hide behind a false wall,
    I heard a saying once that made a real impact on me..
    'FEAR KNOCKED, FAITH ANSWERED..NO-ONE WAS THERE!
    Take care, Love duncan X

    It's the way it has to be, but it takes us a while to fully appreciate it though. Becoming truly ourselves and having the strength to live to the full as ourselves is tough even when you know the road there! Great poem full of insight and wisdom. Expressed with great brevity and effectiveness. xx jim (Report)Reply
