Soul Food

by Annette M. Parrott

Food for my soul 
from the well than shall never run dry
the manna endlessly supplied from the sky 
That fills me, satiates me, addicts me. You know why?
Cause itís served from the bowl of your bountiful supply.
Soul Food, food for my soul.

My cup runneth over and my saucer does too 
With that delightfully delicious Soul Food from you
Itís true. That your Soul Food fills those who hunger and thirst. 
Thereís as much for the last as there is for the first
But I don't want to wait in line. I want to dine! 
Nowís the time for that Soul Food divine.
Soul Food, food for my soul.

Your Soul Food fills my nutritional needs. 
My soul it maintains and my spirit it feeds
With all the requirements to fertilize spiritual seeds 
And discourage weeds.
Down the pathway of eternal living, your Soul Food leads.
Soul Food, food for my soul.

My soul is eternally satisfied. 
My craving for your Soul Food will never subside 
Subsistence for spiritual sustenance it provides
whether baked, boiled, fricasseed or fried 
your Soul Food remains the same, worldwide. 
Soul Food, food for my soul.

Bread of heaven feed me till I want no more, 
I adore, your, nourishing store
I come before you, to implore you 
to pour me some more of your victuals of victory 
with grace and other garnishes galore that is.
Soul Food, food for my soul.

I long to feast on your Soul Food cuisine
That sticks to my ribs like corn bread, 
pigís feet and collard greens, you know what I mean?
Keeping my body clean and the flesh lean. 
So energized with joy, thereís no need for caffeine.
For breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper, snacks, yet never routine 
Soul Food, food for my soul.
