Let Your Soul Heal

.

“Give it air

& let the scar

on your soul

reveal itself,

because,

like the body,

it too was made

to heal itself.”

oodles, oodles and oodles, more goodies galore
what chocoholic could want for anything more
a true paradise is the bakery in a candy store
the only requirement is that you fit inside the door

put the candy along side the check out aisle
guilt will go away when you promise to walk another mile
remember to clean your teeth before you smile
for the obsessed there can never be a stockpile

just buy larger size clothing when you start to get plump
denying your passion will only make you a grump
only the young can do the long, broad or high jump
besides, who wants to be as healthy as Donald Trump

so I’ll have one more chocolate, if you please
just the weird can live on cottage cheese

Poem:

.

it is alright to let your mind travel to far away lands
trips to a fantasyland that no one else understands
just remember to come home from time to time
unless your chosen vocation is being a street mime

those who think they are in control call it a daydream
hopefully your trips are not too frequently upstream
beware of the romantic delusion that verges upon lust
better to dream being rich and building a charitable trust

is it only the sick whose fantasies become nightmares
or was it what you ate that made you unawares
what of the seer whose mind cultivates premonitions
can anyone do it under the right set of conditions

must you make reservations to take these trips
must you pack a bag if you’re joining the apocalypse
let this rhyme stimulate your mind
and may all of your trips be one of a kind
