Soul, sawol, sela, seolaThe soulSoul, sawol, sela, seola by Ashry42
The Modern English word "soul", derived from Old English sáwol, sáwel, was first attested to in the 8th-century poem Beowulf and in the Vespasian Psalter —it is cognate with other Germanic and Baltic terms for the same idea, including Gothic saiwala, Old High German sêula, sêla, Old Saxon sêola, Old Low Franconian sêla, sîla, Old Norse sála and Lithuanian siela.
Further etymology of the Germanic word is uncertain. The original concept is said to mean originally 'coming from or belonging to the sea/lake' because of the Germanic belief in souls being born out of and returning to sacred lakes; Old Saxon sêola (soul) compared to Old Saxon sêo (sea).

StardustI love your stars.Stardust by VioletRogue
They cast upon the mountaintops,
A promise of the coming sun.
An assurance of protection
Of our glorious moon.
A wink of a twinkle
In our fantastic dark sky,
Is a reminder,
Of the majesty of kingdoms above.
Burnwe're slanging rocksBurn by DylanSeto
over the book
we choose to place in
hotel rooms. The last
war, I exchanged
pages of the Koran
for verses if the Bible,
hoping it would help
us, but we tore the pages,
and burnt them to ashes.
Now you're wearing bones on your chest
and I'm wearing serpents on my head.
Now we're trying to turn blood to gold,
But our language barriers bury us closer to hell.
This is WarThis is WarThis is War by MissTsukii
The gates are open, they're flooding out
I'm a one man army, there's no doubt
These soldiers are of different shapes, sizes and color,
I use all my might, strength and power
to put up a fight.
They're strong, don't get me wrong,
This war will last very long!
I'm pushing, trying to get through,
So irritating, so confusing, so tiring! (phew!)
My brows are crossed and my mind is lost
and my body can't bare it all
my eyes go fuzzy and then i fall...
Now i'm buried underneath this rubble,
I can hear my mother scream,
"If you'd have kept your wardrobe clean,
You wouldn't have gone through all this trouble!"
Dew DropDew DropDew Drop by MissTsukii
Parted without any goodbyes…
falling from the highs
fresh and beautiful!
Just falling freely, with no rule….
All those eyes watching,
see a bright smile, and sing,
"wonderful, delightful, how free!"
The real truth can anyone see?
As it dropped off the leaf,
all eyes gone and solitaire engulfed it's belief
of someone to understand,
that there's a frown behind that smile
None stretched their hand, let it dissolve in the sand
the dew drop's worth just lasted a while…
nobody to understand the story
of the one that lost it's melody,
waiting to be freed from melancholy:
The song of the one, who's lonely…
