Been Cheated Five Times Already - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

I've been cheated
five times and five times
i have to assure myself
that nothing's wrong
with their cheating

they get what they want
and they punish themselves
after
anyway.

i am not diminished
by their evil deeds
i am not envious of
their success.

i close my eyes on the
night of my defeat
and chant my mantra:
' i am great. i am good.
i am honest. I am not
evil'.

to sound sleep i go.
mornings are great.
sun is brighter.
birds still sing. air so
fresh.

I am new
and invigorated
with what i
am.
