An Ode to a Speeding Bullet

You can run from the city, you can run to the farm
You can run from the bully who wants to do you harm.
You can run from most anything you wish to run from,
You canít outrun The Self it is faster than a gun.

You can run from your spouse and buy another house,
You can run from your boss, who is an albatross,
You can run from most anything you wish to run from,
You canít outrun The Self it is faster than a gun.

Speeding bullet, speeding bullet oh how fast you go,
You canít outrun The Self for it contains the soul.

All your attempts to run are as futile as can be,
You can run but you canít hide from a side you cannot see,
It is brighter than the sun and wider than the sea,
You canít outrun The Self, it is the authentic me.

Speeding bullet, speeding bullet oh how fast you go,
You canít outrun The Self for it contains the soul.

The soul is who you are, and it is never very far,
It is brighter than the morning, or the morning star,
Go within, not without to find out whom you are,
It is here youíll find repose from the soot and from the tar.

Speeding bullet, speeding bullet oh how fast you go,
You canít outrun The Self for it contains the soul.

The soul is the true master and captain of your fate,
It has never left you homeless and it is patiently in wait,
You can run from most anything you wish to run from,
You canít outrun The Self it is faster than a gun.

Speeding bullet, speeding bullet, oh how fast you go,
You canít outrun The Self for it contains the soul.

D. Scott Arant
