these beautiful souls

 I laid my soul down
in the garden of my life
and resisted
the call to be the same
as everyone else
I wanted to go my own way

I laid my soul down
like a grassy patch
in a desert
and decided for myself
the route I would travel
I loved everyone I met     these beautiful souls

I laid my soul down
like a blue lake in the wilderness
and I climbed the mountain of every challenge
I told myself
the choice was always between love and something else
and I choose love every time

I laid my soul down
in the gap where it vanished
I was not afraid   for the gap
is where the soul lives
I can't tell you more than this
but you must be able to vanish   in order to really exist

I laid my soul down
so that I would be free
of all the world's desires
I told myself that I would live my life
as if it were brief    as transitory as the
dew upon the sunflowers     these beautiful souls
