Truth of Soul In Our Voices

Soul Deep
Truth of Soul In Our Voices
by Michael Doyle

The soul brings access metaphysically
To animate our being into rationality
The soul is the place philosophy can shine
In the light of the heart and the divine

A spark of God comes to be understood
Though the hard sciences deny this as good
Soulless in the gulag stew of chemistry
Modernity it seems seeks to erase this mystery

Yet, here we go again somewhat scholastically
It's there in the deepest well springs
That tradition sets itself out majestically
As a reconstruction of truth that always brings

The substance of all that is in actuality
A moderate course plotted in the realm of possibility
Offering its virtuous elegance in sacred tradition
And still leaves us wanting for soul's true explanation

Aristotle asked questions as if to solemnly assert
The complexities between soul and the body inert
It's there in the animating principle of desire's choices
That we will find the truth of soul in our voices
