The Souls’ Lament


A Senryu Chain

The soul is darkened
By anger and bitterness
Hiding hope and love

Swallowed up by hate
Buried by paralysis
Without chance of life

Goodness is foreign
Repelled by dark forces
Keeping the soul captive

    I feel as if you cannot get out of where you are, and hopeless, without any chance of life, you said, keeping the soul captive. I feel a sickness is what you maybe talking to us about, and your soul is you life. excellent, Nancy

    Nancy.You are right! When the soul is so totally corrupted by bitterness and hate it is like an illness.I wrote this from the point of view of a soul not seeking redemption.It’s counterpart,”The Souls Joy”,is pending and describes the opposite state.
