Soul And My Body

Soul And My Body long poem

Uploaded by Ramapriya Nr

SOUL and my BODY

My soul often disturbed me in sleep
When I was young and smart
My soul would feel proud of my looks
I would get elated and sleep sound

When I grew up as a teenager
My soul used to taunt me for pimples all over my face
I would tell him in anger that everybody would get it at that age and continued to sleep well

When I became Adult and introvert
My soul used to insult me for looking ugly
I used to reason with him trying to convince him
that I am far better than the Chimpanzee
like Africans and would sleep disturbed

When I barely could get the degree and struggled hard to get a job
my soul would shout at me saying you are good for nothing
But I would plead with the soul in vain not to insult me and hardly could get sleep

When I stepped into ripe age with falling health
My soul would curse me for dumping garbage
on him with countless diseases
I tried in vain to convince him it is all God’s wish and would be awake all night without sleep

My soul desperately wanted to get rid of me
while I tried to hold onto him tightly

Finally my soul pleaded me to release him
I did so after convincing him that it is because of me
he is now getting salvation with no more rebirths
to him as he has wiped out all his past karmas
having entered my body and suffering through out

With the soul flying away to heaven in Ecstasy
My body now Rests in peace with none to care for me

A nice poem. Dichotomy between soul and body beautifully expressed.

Savi Mani

nice poem, the tussle between the soul and the body beautifully explained….
finally the soul is free, happy to be free from taking birth again, the body is bound to decay …..after life is over, but the soul lives till eternity, and remember its your soul only….and in our soul we live till eternity……..


Awesome poem with meaning of life.
