In the Graveyard

Whose soul is it purging itself

among the graves late at night

the one throwing itself upon God

the one heavy with a life's burden

the one trying to release itself from its shell.

I saw that burden that soul carried

heavy with grief of many years

inflicted with pain throughout its threads

I thought it would unravel into dust

it threw itself upon the ground.

The soul I witnessed in the graves

tried to soak itself within the ground

and lashed and moaned with grief

when the earth's entire bosom

wouldn't accept it as its own.
