The Need For Affirmation - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

how i tried to be just myself in the corner
like a stone
but it is not at all possible
i am not just a stone
i am a worm

how i wish just to wriggle
and live in that
small leaf
but it is not at all possible
i am a butterfly

how i wish just to flutter
from one flower to
another
but it is not at all possible
i am a bird

how i wish to be just a bird,
a cloud, the sun, the moon
or the thousand stars

and then i become
a man

and it is enough
you just called my name
and it is perfectly a good beginning
