The Soul That Was Placed Inside This Body That I Wear




It lives

resurrected from the tombs

It flies

over mountains

through clouds made of love

It’s free

to break through barriers

that were placed on it

locking it down like a prisoner

in solitary confinement

It had so much time alone

it almost went insane

It stood on the sidelines

and watched my ego rock my world

So many vile, tasteless, useless events

things that drive the soul deeper

into a bottomless pit

the pit that swallows you whole

disallowing contact with spirit




shackles be gone!

The soul that was placed in this body I wear

is now in charge

Thank you for a body to move

But I will tend it with love

From now on the hard shell

of useless hatred is dissolved

And there is free transfer of love;



and given again.

  2. WOW Lorrie!!! it is such a beautiful and spiritual poem…
    I especially like the line
    “things that drive the soul deeper”
    yes, there are so many learning “things”…
    and the last three lines:
    and given again.”
    well, in fact I love each line of it :-)

    • I’m so happy that you like it Fre’de’ric! This was one of three that spilled out of my pencil yesterday…I could barely keep up with the words!! Yes…we have many opportunities to learn…it is true. And what matters most is how we make it through these lessons. I know you are going through a hard time right now…but I also know that it will make you stronger and that you are going deeper into your reality! Oh…and I’m so proud!!!!….9 black hearts!!!! It is like a “full-in, back-out (double back with a full twist) and I give you a perfect score of “10” LOL…my dear friends own a gymnastics gym and they just sent me a video of that …with the explanation of what it is!!! I would recognize it anywhere!! :) :) <3

  14. Oh, Lorrie, your words really spoke to me this evening. I was feeling very anxious about some things this evening and this reminded me to be whole again. thank you.


  15. WOW Lorrie The depth of the soul has discovered itself…Truly amazing when our awareness and magnificence soar!
    So happy to hear you have been flying in your dreams as well! Rock on! Heart to heart Robyn


  16. I recently wrote about learning and how our body is a carrier for our brain. But even more importantly as you’ve so eloquently stated here, our soul is the important cargo that manifests in the physical world with this body that we wear. Gorgeous words and imagery. You have a great way with words and we’re blessed to read them. Have an amazing day!!
    – Zac
