There is no way

There is no way
you can shut me out, tried that for so long
and you failed
I am inside you
stop groping in darkness outside
you are inside me
like a little nightingale
singing in the morning glory
songs of the earth and sky
of the wind and fire
of the life-force water
souls are free
they are not caged
they reside in the body
out of free will
there is no way you can shut me out .
