Writers Of Truth Serve - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

art like truth secret wears
many names has many voices
names times ages shifts

changes clothes pseudonyms

art must have many names
many voices to survive to thrive
in the face of sly oppressions

singer sing your soul songs
make hungry people happy sad
or exultant in your concerts

while we writers of words
must pay with our writ lives
our souls blood in our veins

we unseen voices of peace
fight sources feeding on wars
demons who sow waste lands

sing your songs in gift peace
siren joy we soul purchase
with our lives freely for thee
