RIC S. BASTASA


to what i see i close my eyes and then i pray.


there are so many doors in this world
you are gifted
you see what is unseen
but we are all the same
that in this freedom
you are allowed to only take one
not both
not many
but just one door to freedom
just one door to do good
but you may choose the bad door which appears
attractive to you
you choose
and then take it
you are gifted
you know the consequences
and so be wise
what i do you have seen me
to what i see i close my eyes
and then i pray.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
