SCREAMING SOUL: FREE MY SOUL
We are looking for a connection.
We all need love.
We want to belong to a place, person, or thing.
So, we fill up restaurants, go on holidays and sightseeing.
We enjoy rides in malls, and flirt in fantasy parks.
And still we feel down, not up.
We try the latest and the greatest… the next big thing;
The app, the download and the ipod.
The smoothie, latte and gelato, or any other demi-god.
And still, we are not full.
We are always hungry for love.
We are lonely and broken hearted.
Searching for everlasting, unconditional, love.
An all consuming love… which will swallow up the pain.
The love of human beings is always a strain.
Others always cause us pain.
And so we still feel empty…
And when the place, person, or thing gets boring,
We start scoring.
To find a “new” version of the “old” one.
New mall. New phone. New relationship.
The soul is always screaming.
For freedom to be free.
Uneasy in its’ stillness.
Overcome by its’ illness…
Of not being able to sit still or silent.
This modern social sickness: desire to move so urgent.
It breaks the soul.
Movement is the only goal.
The sadness of the madness can only be erased
With the gift of SALAH.
The medicine for hypertension and for loneliness.
Is found inside the oneliness.
The connection to our Lord.
We are in need of love, refreshment and connection.
We need to be pulled together.
Put back in place with something very snug, safe and strong.
We need to sing the love song.
The words of our SALAH.
