My Lost Soul - Poem by Shelly Price

Somewhere in the darkness...
buried beneath the debris.
There's a soul that's been lost...
the one that lived inside of me.

Lost to sorrow and sadness...
faced with anger and regret.
The soul that once was mine...
still can't forgive and forget.

It's been a long lonley journey,
for my soul without a home.
Imagine never feeling happiness...
and forever feeling alone.

Imagine ever present fear...
at every turn in every day.
Only then can you imagine...
why my soul ran away.

Still afraid of each tomorrow...
carrying the pain of all that was...
in search for all the answers...
to help explain each because.

My soul has been sick...
sick and tired of the life I've led.
Always an absence of spirit...
where reality and truth were dead.

I've surrendered to my soul...
and have begged for it's return...
with promise of God's spirit...
to help us together grow and learn.

Dedicated to myself...to remember that my pain
has been a stepping stone to my growth.
