    A TIRELESS SOUL, by Chief Elder Osiris

    Look, Look and see, up into the distant sky,
    do you see what need to be seen by you, things that will tell you about the
    by and by.

    Walk that path that lead over yonder hills, walk it and no, do not get
    tired, even if it seem that such a distance will kill.

    As the core of the Sun bring glare to the sky, keeping it in its action.
    As the Moon so instruct the Ocean to be not distracted a fraction.

    The sea must maintain its waves,
    so it shall, to the end of days and a tireless soul cease not, until it mend
    its ways.

    The Soul need not count its days or be allowed distraction, but always be
    conscious of its ways and attraction.

    Could it be, all those things that trouble the Soul, I must resent.
    Can it be that my soul grow weary, as my mind wait on its continue assignment?

    What thing is that which will not allow my soul to rest in contentment.

    A tireless Soul is one that do not rest under the cloak of oppression.

    Hear the voices of those who knew not the agony of depression.

    Such should be the Tireless Soul compass, never to lose its way to a place
    that will give the Soul comfort.

    A tireless Afrikan Soul rest not until the work is done and when it is done,
    it take refuge in the Afrika Sun.

    I could talk about the wonderful rhyme scheme and meter, but I don't want to take away from the impact of it's message. Such strength beyond what seems humanly possible. Thank you so much for posting this piece.

    I have walked this path. And it seem like I would never reach the destination that was before me. I became restless. I had to develop patience, and keep my step sturdy, I still have much work to do, and lots more to learn



    Thank you for sharing

    Peace
