The Spirit Within
Spirits are carefree.
They should never be held down.
Made of pure energy – They are our very life source.
For every man, his life spirit is different from others.
Each spirit is unique in it owns way.
As a child our spirits are carefree.
We laugh, we run, we love, as love is given to us.
Sadly, as we grow, our spirits become harnessed by the rules of life.
Saddled with burden.
Spirits are meant to fly high – Free as a bird.
Sadly, our spirits cry when pain is inflicted upon us.
My spirit has been captured and taken prisoner.
It has been beaten, bruised and even scolded in the days of my life.
But my spirit will never die.
My spirit is what keeps me going.
Without it I would surely die.
Although saddled and harnessed, my spirit always always finds a way to show itself and be free.
Freedom on the road on two wheels.
Freedom to laugh and love when with friends.
Freedom to express myself in writing.
By my God given right, my spirit will always shine for all to see.

Right now my spirit is hungry – how about feeding it with some chili-dogs and a cold beer!!!
