Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Price And Pride Of Status Earned


i have been watching people,
the way so many hurt others,
in a need to be special,
important, to have status,

happiness appreciation;
regardless of the cost
regardless of the pain
regardless of suffering

inflicted on others
in a demented race
to rise above agony
altar inscribed to humanity
