A Discovery - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

this is what he found: that the more you evade
something that you fear
the more it stays and threatens you more
adds more fears
on this stance of denial

ah, confront it
head on
bounce and pounce
and sip and swallow and take in
digest and let it stay
whenever it wants to

things get boring
events want to roam
incidents are mere incidents
not wanting to stay any longer
memories dissolve
trauma escapes
there is no eternity to all these longings
and haphazard

let go
expel, forget and then move on
that is what life is all about
and death too
