The Suicidal In Him - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

too much intelligence is dangerous
my friend
too much idealism
detached from reality
one gets restless
searching for the Shamala
and the Shangrila

with a little sense of humor
the ability to be
one less of a perfect self
the capacity to laugh
at our errors
to dismiss what is so important
and just take things as they are
dabbling on the
unselfish away from a self-centered

i guess, he could not have taken
his own life.
