The Spirit – Poem

The spirit,
Latches onto,
And clutches,
The wings of lofty exuberance,
Fitfully,
It ebbs and flows,
Between anguish and glee,
Hardened by the world,
Yet the spirit is weakened,
By words of the vile,
Odiously they dampen the spirit,
Pay no heed to these lost souls,
Look not outward for happiness,
The spirit is found within,
Encompassed,
Look inward,
Toward the life source,
The eternal aatma.
