My soul oh how you have tormented me
The struggles of the flesh and spirit beset me at every junction
Each trying to win over each other
And you watched me fall and rise
Yet did nothing

For wisdom lived in you
And you knew I had to make the right choices
To enter into darkness or fly into the light
To hate or to love
To spin around in happiness
Or fall into sin

Yes my soul you watched
And looked intently at me
I knew, you were there watching my life
Besides Christ
It is you too, who wanted to be saved
And not to be lost into the eternal fires

Nor did I want too either, my dearest soul
I thank you, for hoping and praying
That I would be free
Of all that would enslave me
Yes my soul, I am free
Come, let us walk together to heaven

The lessons are finally learnt
The doors to all that will take me from the Lord closed
Come my soul
Together let us sail into eternal bliss
High as the eagles
Flying with the Holy Spirit
Radiant that with His grace, neither you nor I will be lost

Come let us soar
Higher and higher
Into His light
Into His embrace
Eternal love awaits us
Nothing can entrap us
You and I now harnessed to Christ forever and ever amen

Good free verse. Enjoyed it!

Separation between me and my soul? I studied on this, read it over and over...and yes, body is one thing and breath (soul) is another, so I guess they can chat; Not to worry, writer, I've never been able to understand free verse...but I did try on this one...as it intrigued me, and I desperately WANTED to "get it". Thank you.

It is unclear who or what the speaker is and this spoils the flow of the poem. Flesh? Spirit? Something else? That said, I particularly enjoyed the final verse, with its heavenwards ascension.

I really like this. I am not a huge fan of free verse...but this is beautiful and reads very well.
