What a soul means to me...

My Soul

by Susanjohn

Soul Writer Contest Winner 
A tender soul buried within
battling this original sin
that knows in time will overcome
removed from fear and not 
succumb.

The essence below breathes alive
urges the body to survive
a singularity with God
Impervious to my 
facade.

Encompassed faith with desire
teeters between constant fire
As purity is directed
a gentle spirit
reflected.

This mystery can't be explained
yet, a knowing to be sustained
undeniable living part
a loving master's work of 
art.

Death cannot transfix me with fear
my Father holds me very near
Earthly body will always roam
Till the day my soul is called 
home.
