Do you Know I have a soul, said Bari?

What is a soul, said Jade? Its’ beautiful, so beautiful,

Inside my body, never too young and never too old:

So kind and gentle, its like Heaven I was told,

We cannot see, the soul that longs to be free;

not cage like you and Beea!

Jade! “Do you know I can fly, said Bari?”

How can you fly, said Jade?”

I climb the tallest tree, stretch my arms, close my eyes  & pretend,

I am an eagle moving about gracefully, with the clouds & wind;

I am on top of the world feeling free, not cage like you & Beea!

Jade! Do you know I can sing, said Bari?”  “Is that everything, said Jade?”

No! Here it goes, “I am a King, a Royal, Mighty handsome King!

I am a King, I am a King! I am a Mighty Handsome King!

Now you know I can sing, feeling free, not cage like you and Beea’

I know I was meant to be free!!! I Am free!!!  Yes I am free!!!

I Am free and you too can be, said Bari !!!

Because of my divine supreme using giants and various people to help develop within and allowed the God consciousness of my mind to see the greatness of his love.
