If I Should Lose My Soul

Rating: 5.0
Will music fall flat
upon my ears? Could
the sun rising become
only the day's light?
Is my laughter then
only an empty sound?

If I should lose my soul,

might I forget to forgive?
Would I still practice in joy
that which could just be done?
Would I care if you cry?

If I should lose my soul,

would I bargain to live
one more minute
without human love?
Seeing my reflection
in a rodent's eyes

and in the flick of a
serpent's tail?

Thought provoking questions you ask in this write. These lines were the ones that had caused me to stop and think when I read them. might I forget to forgive? Would I still practice in joy that which could just be done? Would I care if you cry? There are many other questions that I could add to the ones you have asked, ones that I do not voice because I am not sure I want to know the answers. Thank you for making me think. Excellent work.
