RIC S. BASTASA


believing in yourself


to start with
let me tell you right at this moment
you must learn
to believe in the powers vested by the gods
to yourself

the movement of your fingers upon the command
of your mind
cannot just be underestimated as something that
everyone does anyway

it will take a lot of scientific minds to really explain
how a nerve impulse is sent from your brain
to your fingertips
how you react to a pinch
or a simple smile from your lover

you move to the manner in eating a chunk of chocolate
how does your mouth water?
the imagination itself is so powerful
you thirst for something sweet
and like to melt this chunk of chocolate inside
your mouth
your tongue plays a tune
of a sweet sonata

do not underestimate the power of admiration and
remembering
do not disregard the power of your heart when it starts to love
and wanting to be loved in return
how it jumps in joy like a child
how it feels the pain
and how it wants to redeem itself when unrequited

you have these powers
these wonders

believe in yourself
you are part of this magical universe
the bursting of creation
the marvels of magical incantation

believe in yourself
you are a god/goddess undiscovered all these years
by yourself

your eyes not seeing
your heart so unfeeling

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
