Farewell To Life Individuals Scripted Poem by Terence Craddock

Farewell To Life Individuals Scripted

born into life potentials
we are clay wet sculpture
shaped worked by hands
time shaping kneading
desires dreams clay born
who casts shapes flux form
indents nature first modeled
who adds fine craft details

styles hair look within eyes
character personalities
heart warm cold brain fused
will light in eyes be time
blaze radiant or stolen dimmed
will we embody life stolen

will we live life not our own
wanting to be never leaping
off cliffs into chances unknown
leap of faith taken running
every cell in being chasing
dreams hard won potentials

choices wanting to be never born
struggle impossibilities never won
never gold dust moving mountain
deserts past littered with fools gold
skeletons oceans entomb shipwrecks
sailors life chill dream drowned lives

farewell to life individuals scripted
may be chance aged late youth soon...
surprise in moments life sudden stolen
time cycles fingernail fingertip full moon
life lived in swallowed love deep breaths
life lived shallow mist breath mirror surface...

what words are spoken in time allowed farewell
confessions secrets loves hidden or sudden...
death words left hanging in eternity not spoken
never known are words never said never told
all die wither regretfully slowly or sudden bled
all life all love all dreams stolen or life lived...

time stealth steals all life in time all dreams
hopes ambitions are age stolen life withers
old age steals aging pale saggy flesh until life
is bled heartbeat dry or smiles in memories lived
