Our Souls - Poem by Vaughn Bekker

What will our souls reveal
If the layers back you peal
People only the surface see
And not what inside may be
Everyone is too fast to judge
To get angry and hold a grudge
If only we could take the time
I live like what’s yours is mine
To reach out a helping hand
And to just try and understand
If we only took the time to care
How much love would there be out there
So if another soul you see
Stop and see who it may be
You may just see the one you find
Could be the one who needs your kind
For if you someone gave a little pleasure
For their heart it would be a treasure
For every soul is in need
Every soul needs a seed
if one persons pain we could erase
would it not be a better place
so take the time to stop and care
and a little love we must share
for in their heart may be a hole
but a little love could fix their soul
so as the layers away we peel
you may just see how they feel
even when it sounds obsurd
they may just need an encouraging word
i little gesture of a good heart
could be the repair it needed to start
to fix the one who needs it most
and to walk away and never boast
we never know it may be true
the next soul need fixing may be you
so never judge when we do see
you never know what inside may be
