The Internal Flame Burns For As Long As I Continue to Be

They are not interested in my expansive mind

They are not interested in my endless imagination

They are not interested in my rare of this world humanity

They will not give these things the light of day

They want my soul and I will not give it to them

I am the sole owner of my soul and being

I am free to think and to be on a path all my own

The ends nor the means are justified

To sell your soul for a desired goal

Maybe I will always be a nobody

In the perverted world of material things

And in the realm of unseemly fame

But I am and will always be

The sole owner of my soul

I will never sacrifice it

I live my life  by the old physiician’s creed

To do no harm

Not to others,, not to myself

This is who I am

This is who I will always be

This is my life’s one certainty

A flame burning deep within

For as long as i continue to be
