Soul Slap

Maybe it's that one eye-opener that
everyone needs.
Or two, maybe even three to create
knowledge like life from a tree.
Trials and tribulations stick like bad habits and set backs.
Time and time again you could be trying
to raise up, but still laying flat on that back.
Mind elevation, soul revelation,
maybe even a little spiritual experimentation,
Makes it possible to live with some
gratification in this tired nation.
Love, patience and faith will be my soul's
embodiment; helping me to eliminate some
of this world's decoy.
It will be just that to turn this soul slap
into a soul revolution, filling me up with
a new kind of joy.
