oh fractured soul

                    why do you torture me ?

          I believed we'd parted

impoverished soul

                   yet why do you steal from ye ?

           I communed with you and your pleas for peace

silly, spurious sojourner

                   will you ever find your way to thee ?

           know the path is 

within and without

                     unsatisfied fruits of labor and reason
                           come to you 

                                    oh sweet relief
