THE DIFFERENCES

Sometimes in the amazing ignorance

l hear things and see things 

I never knew l saw and heard before

Sometimes in the ignorance 

I feel the meaning

Invincible invisible wisdom,

And I commune with intuitive instinct

With the force that made life be

And since it made life be

It is greater than life

And since it let extinction be

It is greater than extinction.

l commune with feelings more than

prayer

For there is nothing else to ask for

That companionship is

And it is superior to any other is.

Sometimes in my amazing ignorance

Others see me only as they care to see

I am to them as they think

According the standard I should not be

And that is the difference between I and them

Because I see them as they are to is

And not the seeming isness of the was.
