An Uncommon Reality - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

I never lived in your world.
I never knew what it was like.
I have no real conception, of what normality is?
I never had to take drugs to escape.

I already lived in a world of my own.
I never aimed for or earnestly sort the high life.
I lived an artistic life, of the mind of the soul,
forever separating my life, from the common life.

From the common man and the common clay.

Everything was so sharp and clearly in focus.
Everywhere I saw and heard and knew too much.

I lived upon a heightened vibration rate
an awareness; as incredibly focused intensity.
I lived with such dynamic, personal passion,
I did not know; what it was like; to be passionless.

I knew that some people lived husks of life
but I; did not fully know; what it was to be a husk.
I always had somewhere beneath adversity
which afflicted me; the redemption; of artistic insight.

I guess this explains why husks gather,
so many possessions, to prop up their lives.
Husks are so empty, they often get blown away,
by the soulless wind, generating materialistic values.

I bequeath
a sacred gift
to enhance
enrich such lives.

Come live within
spirit of creativity
one spirit almighty
our divine creator.
