SOUL COMPANION

There’s been a sadness in my soul
For much too long a time
I’ve always tried to deal with it
With words inside a rhyme

I used to just ignore it
Till it reached a point of shout
And in a fit of anger
I would finally let it out

I learned that’s not the road to take
It keeps you from the quest
And so I write the words
Then just go out and do my best
