Rebel Soul

You rebel soul,
I watch you from afar.
Up close I see you
And I adore the fire
That you are.
They give you
A bunch of bad callings,
They don’t see your light.
They say you are not likely to make it
But I root for you,
From the bottom of my heart 
I want you to make it.
You rebel soul,
I watch you from afar,
You stir things up
And I want to be you.
Up close I see you
And I feel your glow,
Keeping me warm inside.
You rebel soul,
I want you to forgive me. 
I don’t speak up as often, 
Maybe I let you down.
Never did I forget you,
I have you engraved deep inside.
You know I’m all for you,
Even if despair got the best of me.
Your light steers me back
To where I need to be.
