I've lived a common life
I didn't know this was unacceptable
but I saw no difference in that
and in living beyond the grasp
of my understanding
nothing pleased the One
except our acquiescence in being
robots by our own consent
oh I will miss the 'freedom'
of being mortal and tasting each morsel
of living joy but it will also pass remembered
only as the lesson of our curiosity
and how each and every common life
is unique in its fulfillment
