Soul Unbound



I buried my Soul,
Where it could never be found.
Under layers fortified.
Sin, Pride, Envy, Anger, Jealousy
All I deemed justified.
When the human husk gave way,
There was my Soul unbound.
Untarnished and forever free.
With eyes rendered blind,
I smiled and said goodbye
to what was Me,
for eternity...
