The Stories We Long Want To Tell - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA
it is all about stories.
stories we know by heart
but still untold
we have fears you know
that truth may be too much to
something may burst
explode and there may be
truth like war has to take also
a form of chivalry
this sense of humanity and
grab or destroy only when necessary
of harm, justify later that
all is done in the name of a long
and lasting peace
love of the world
survival of mankind.
the stories are true you write at the end
but the names, and places and events
elevated as art, as fiction, as seats arranged
to make it look like
that we are having a fine dinner
all casts dressed
regal and dignified.
