Call It Something Else

Call It Something Else, By Brian37 (AKA Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @Brianrrs37 on Twitter)

Call it something else
This you, your personality
Your neurological pathways

Your life events,
Your rises, your falls
Your humor, it calls

Call it something else
You deserve better
Than to assign “you”

Your core, your being
To be detached, somehow
Floating, like a ghost

Separate than you
Yet in you
How can this be true?

Don’t cheapen
Your existence
Don’t pretend

That you are
Some doll
Batteries inserted

By a cosmic hand
And call it a “soul”
You are worthy

Of a far better designation
Than some antiquated

You are you
You are tangible
Knowable, seeable

You have no soul
You don’t need a soul
You are you

And that is very real
You are very real
You make you special

Call it “you”
Because that
Is the only you.

There is no such thing as a “soul”. You are your brain in motion combined with your live events that have shaped you, and your neurological pathways, your personality. Don’t cheapen your life with a superstitious gap filling word. You are beautiful without angry God/s or old mythologies.
