If You Go Out In The Woods Today! - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

“If you enter
dark
woods beware

evil hides
bidden in
mysteries rare”


I cannot be story book boy
who sings loudly enough
to overcome face the fear!

Nor am I the one who shouts
'Hello, this is not my story! '
Nor the one who cries wolf!

I am not cannot be that boy
I am cast the fool that walks ever
forward ever onward boldly

where angels fear to tread
and I do so love mysteries
myths legends await hero!


The conquest climb is not over
when great peak is climbed
but when mountaineer returns!

Where better adventurer buried
than rooftop of an entire world
where dreams touch horizon sky?

Like fear evil is best conquered killed within!
Evil is fought faced because it exists memorial!
True hero cannot face evil always quest survive!
