RIC S. BASTASA


Welcome...


one must always
decide to be
happy

i always tell myself that

others have no time
deciding for us
that way

i always do it
giving justice to my
existence

if sadness comes
it is not mine

if it stays
because it loves me

so? i am always a lovable person
loving to a certain extent
what i do not have and cannot own

sadness
is an alien
i have all these
curiosity to know it well sometimes
& so
it stays with me
comforted by my decision
that i welcome
everyone
everything that comes inside
my house
my heart

life is a house where i live
welcome guests, welcome!
