Rubber Soul

Rubber soul

The treads run thin at times in our lives

The pain sneaks through like fresh sharpened knives

Should I sell my soul?

Should I give in and fold?

Or kick back with a fresh step of my soul with a goal to revive

We scream at times I can’t take anymore or go another step

You don’t know the miles I’ve walked and the tears I’ve wept

I’ll walk right beside you and I care

I’ve come here now to make you aware

It’s time to reach inside our souls’ endless reserve to give our step a bit more pep

You can stop looking at the miles, the pain, the wear and tear- if you choose

It’s comparable to someone who for continuous hours on end studies a bruise.

Will it really change the fact?

That you got to where you’re at?

Let’s not try walking in another’s but instead try fitting better into our own shoes.

The human propensity to survive, to endure, to achieve a goal

Is at times left at the wayside, waylaid, surrendered and left untold

Do you understand the souls ability?

The graceful magical elasticity?

It can stretch for endless miles through any trek, yes it’s the amazing soul
