What fires up your spirit? What are you creating in your life that you would sign your name to? … For if souls are not of this earth, though our bodies they rent, I challenge you to defy the laws of reason till your every thought is spent.
You echo my recurring dream,
A shadow in the day.
You move the thoughts from my pillow,
So please, don’t slip away.
Your touch releases a tonic
To stimulate my brain--
Fire, water, Earth, and flesh become one
In my heart’s hurricane.
I dare the wind to follow me,
Destiny’s in my hand.
I’ll share the gift of magic speech
That you may understand,
For if souls are not of this earth,
Though our bodies they rent,
I’ll defy the laws of reason
Till every thought is spent.
