The Vision

By jamesaguiar - Posted on 25 January 2010

 The artist's life
is lonely beyond definition:
defying ambition
it is not a question of talent,
but of perspective-
whether from the highest point
or the most painful depth,
it is the vision
the mission
to see askance a world
that everyone, other, sees head on.
It is waiting for that moment of transcendence 
of escape
when a blinding view
of a world anew
sends one to heaven or hell,
but is never on the mean
being part of a scene unseen
by anyone else
at the penultimate moment
a sister or brother
in heart
becomes a part
if even in a small way
of his solitary play.
