The Other Side Of Self-Centeredness - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

no one believes
that the earth is the center of this universe

or that our universe is the center of
all other universes

insignificant, that is a fact
i am insignificant

but this insignificance
can kill

what is meaningless hurts
the most

this, i, for instance, and so
we go on faith,

i am the center of this universe,
and i have the right to be so

there is a bulb that lights
in my heart

spread throughout the darkness of
my nights

there is paradise inside my body
there are skies in my eyes

and look, the colors of my world
change

blooms, and shines, and blinks,
i am at the center of it all,

alive and meaningful....
