Does Your Soul Need Cleansing?
MN (11-08-1970 / )

Does Your Soul Need Cleansing?

When you think of all the things
that you have done, both good and bad.
Do you wonder which ones made you
live the life that you have had?

If you were standing naked
showing everyone your soul,
Do you think the things you've done
will have taken such a toll?

Will your soul look very lovely
or will it have some stains?
Have your choices smudged it?
Maybe the dirt is what remains?

Is there a way to wash your soul?
To cleanse off all the dirt?
To wipe away the painful things you've done...
erase the hurt?

Perhaps we should just think of this
with each thing that we do.
I wouldn't want my soul exposed with stains...
How about you?

Mary, you make a great point with wonderful visuals. Certainly, an interesting view... great write! ! Brian
answer to your question- scars are a way of showing that you've made mistakes and you've become stronger, smarter, better. thats why i love scars. not showing your scars is the same as hiding a part of who you are a part of your soul.my question-would you do that? ? ? ? ..............
The dirt makes you true, real, 'normal'. True cleanliness is unattainable as an adult and pretending to be clean is the dirtiest of all. this made me angry some, I'm not sure why.
MARY, I LIKE THE POEM, I THINK YOU WERE HOLDING BACK ON THE POINTS YOU MADE, STILL I LIKE THE POEM...
I shudder to think Mary, how about trying some good old soap and water? Sincerely Ernestine
