A Tainted Soul


A tainted soul I cannot use,

With that kind of soul,

one can only abuse,

A soul in darkness will just abound,and

spread its disease all around,

A spirit that is free,

will only free,

but a tainted soul produces captivity,

A memory in chains will not see,

until the spirit grants liberty,

The imagination unlit will only wander,

Yet, when enlightened it is full of grandeur.


Lorna Lamon on February 11, 2020:

I love the truth within these lines, in particular 'A spirit that is free will only free'. Beautiful words wrapped up in wonderful poetry.
