Soul Fly

 
Why does the soul not fly when it hears the call?
Is it because we are so caught up
in this thing called LIFE
That when our calling is upon us
We miss it
 
Why not go?
Vacate, vanish, disappear
When asked
What are you going to miss
Something that happened
In your past?
 
Do we feel obligated to keep our feet planted
On solid ground
Until we are so afraid to lift them up?
We are tied down
Shackled
Weighed heavily
Truly bound
To this thing called
Life!
 
My child when it's time
It's time
Do not fear
Do not fret
For we must all go to that place
Of the unknown
 
Dedicate some part of your life
To some higher being
Someone higher than yoursself
For HE will not leave YOU 
Or me
 
Nor will HE forsake thee
It is the way
