THE DEMONS IN THE SOUL

*THE DEMONS IN THE SOUL*
---------/ ---------
With the breadth of life
Set to perceivable limits
And with the secret of immortality
Hidden in the breadth of infinity
It is mandatory
That any soul pining to be worthy
Must seek the secrets of success
That assure a permanent name
In history's Grail of Fame

Somewhere in the middle of the road
..An advent soul knows not
..whether it is far gone
..or still has far to go
Seeking a home
..without a reference to belong
..keeps aflame the hope
..in the traveling soul
The next signpost
..always a better sight to behold

In modern times as never before
..and always so
It is more possible
..to travel far and wide
Without leaving the confines of home
..and more profitably so
For a soul
..that always wishes to be gone
The anchor is not
..in the offers of the ground
But in appeasing
..the demons in the soul
