You Violate Your Soul Every Day In This Society—Don’t Believe Me?

You violate your soul when you put up with people who devalue and disrespect you, when you say yes even if you want to shout out NO!

Do you think violation is only of the mind and body?
Trust me when I say that you violate your soul,
When you refuse to just be,
And set it free.

You violate your soul
When you repress your desires,
And accept to be within the societal confines.

You violate your soul
When you put up with people who devalue and disrespect you,
Because the norms dictate,
IF you are decent that’s what you do.

You violate your soul when your whole being says no,
But you say yes anyway,
Because you are expected to say so.
You violate your soul when you trade the sanctity of your being,
With a lack of self love and being genuine.
When you cover your truth with layers of facade,
Believing this is the shield to protect your heart.

Funny you think violation is only of the mind and body?
When you intuitively know you violate your soul,
When you refuse to just be,
And set your wild soul be free.
