Teen Life Poem: Body, Mind, and Soul

Body, mind, and soul
You stole my heart
When I looked into your eyes
And to my surprise
You saw my heart
And you came in and saved me

Body, mind, and soul
I work my fingers to the bone
I work all day
I work all night
Night and day, day and night
I wish I could relax
Let my body float like a kite
Body, mind, and soul
Through your eyes
You see my sin
Through my eyes
I see material things
Through you eyes
You see my thoughts and my pain
Through my eyes and my mouth
I see and say your name

Body, mind, and soul
Help me see what's inside of my heart
Help me start a new beginning
Help me take a new step
A new chapter
