I Came Upon My Soul One Day | A Poem by E.C. Vento

In the woods, I came upon my soul one day…
it turned and looked as if to say…
“I look for heaven, but I’ve lost my way…”

My shadow turned to it to point…
“You’ve lost your way because your void.”
“Pray to Him a sign you’ll find…
because the Devil has made you blind.”

My body froze, would not believe,
my soul kept walking as it took its leave.

I came upon my soul one day…
I wish that I hadn’t let it stray.

    I like the fact that you mention 3 separate entities in the story. The soul, the shadow, and then the body. It creates an interesting dynamic since there is actually only one character being you. Great job E.C.
