Dear Soul, Yours Truthfully
Written by John Swartz
My Dear Soul I write to you with a heavy heart,
I have words that needs to be shared with you,
Written in these verses and stanzas written for you,
I asked for guidance by some high above power;
I find myself neglected and needing your advice.
How can I be a man without support or strength,
My enemies are willing to strike for my knees brutally,
They want to take me out and crush my very soul,
Willing me to become the gravel of the old dirt road,
I wonder what I have done? God, oh why? Why?
Your voice has never neglected me or guided me wrong!
Give me your wisdom and pull the strings for a while,
Get me out of this war-zone that threatens to consume me,
I have done whatever I needed to say but that doesn't seem enough;
How long am I expected to smile with such a frown?
I know in you that it's almost over now,
Friendship is so brittle that the storm carries away,
I can't take the pain that they have caused me,
I suppose that your voice is quiet and broken,
Goodbye being the only thing left to bring.
I need your wisdom,
I need your advice,
Can you carry me on?
