Chapter 9 – Wandering Souls

Chapter 9 of “The Proven Life”


Time owns you
Time says when to sleep
When to live
When to die

Souls searching
Misplaced loved ones
Traversing the earth
For eternity

No thought or memory
Foreign lands upon their feet
No Heaven to ascend to
No hell to descend to

No relief of heat
No change of mind
No love to continue
No life to live

The tundra stretches
Before them
No mountain in the distance
No river to drink from

No caribou to feast
No wildflower to inhale
The wandering souls
Inhabit nowhere.

  1. Such a lonely sounding purgatory. Your writing is just so lyrical and evocative. This series will really stick with me, and I’m sure I’ll be returning here to read it time and again.
