Hey everyone, the author of this poem sent this to me and I thought i'd post it with their permission of course. I love it and feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time. Empty Soul "Hi", she said,and looked at me "Are you a person too?" "Of course I am" I answered her "Do I not look like people do?" "Well, I have a special sense of sight I can see into peoples souls I tend to find most interesting things but yours is missng, there's just a hole" "A hole?" I gasped, "what does that mean? That really can't bode well." "Well my dear, just listen to me Sit down and your story I'll tell. It's not often I find empty souls, I've seen good and I've seen very bad. But an empty soul, it holds more meaning Than any other soul one could have. It is neither good nor bad- It's simply nothing at all. You had a soul once that I know, Perhaps this you may recall. Your soul was bright and full of life, Colored richer than a beautiful rainbow. It held innocence, wonder, laughter, and love- Through your heart and eyes they would show. It held your dreams, and it held your goals Ambitious destinies waiting to be filled. Because it harbored all these positive things, It seemed certain you'd be successful and skilled. Then one day your soul was beaten- It sustained a rather large crack. In just seconds, everything you had Was gone and not coming back. Now you are left with a gaping hole In the place your soul should be. I cannot tell you what to do, But these are options three. You can work hard to seal the crack; It might be emotional though. For in order to create the seal, You'll need to build back trust and love. You can also stay the way you are Nothing but an empty shell I hear you don't covet change at all So, while sad, this could work quite well There is still one more option, And I fear you'll like this one the best: If you feel like life is pointless with no soul, Lay your hollow body to eternal rest.
