For My Soul


I need something for my soul

What it is, I don't know 

But I suspect that I'll know it when I find it 

Or perhaps I'll hear it 

Some things can only be heard and not seen

Seeing is natural 

At least so I believe 

But hearing, listening, is intentional 

I need something for my soul, and it must be heard 

The sounds of voices, music, and cries 

The sounds of laughter and giggles from children 

The sounds of innocence uninterrupted and undisturbed 

The sounds of worship

A rushing mighty wind 

A still small voice emerges 

Found in the voices of Lalah + India + Jill 

Perhaps Sia + Solange 

Urban prophets of a new generation

Chance + Kendrick + Cole

I need something for my soul

Sounds of resistance flood the streets

Passion, peace, when there is no peace 

No justice, no peace

The sounds of wailing at the walls

Women, through your walls comes healing

Teach your daughters how to wail

I need something for my soul 

Perhaps, my soul needs to hear the sound of it's own wail
