The Soul’s Poem

There is a secret poem
hidden in your heart.
You don’t need to write it,

It was written the moment
you were born,
and is waiting for you to discover it.
You may have uncovered a line of it
here and there.
You may have forgotten it completely
for months and years.
It may come to you all at once
as you race to write the words down
so they will last.
But they will last
because this is the poem of your soul.
These words are more infinite
than anything else you will create in this life.
The wise ones quiet themselves each day
to go within to hear the angels sing to them
the poem of their soul.
In your quest for wisdom follow that same path
back to the soul’s poem within.
