Cause & Effect
Author: Pamela O'Brien


A soul seeks a body
A body seeks a mind
And a mind, creates a soul

A heart seeks a lover
A lover seeks compassion
And compassion, shapes a heart

A new life seeks a beginning
A beginning seeks an end
And an end, sparks a new life

A thought seeks an emotion
An emotion seeks a spirit
And a spirit, provokes a thought

Very Good!


At first, it seemed complicated, caused me to think, which hurts. Once I thought about it, hey, this is very well said, quite simple and honest, actually.
