A Version Of Freedom - Poem by RIC BASTASA

Walked the streets today, mindless
Of the usual ways
I argued with my feet
Wanted to go this way but went that way

Fate had me in its grip & by chance & grace both
I wonder why
I suddenly look up & in your deep
Deep eyes saw the Smile of all Smiles

In my naked wanderings I thought
I heard you whisper my name there you are
Soft and slumbered & cradled in his arms

Well I try to understand why you set me free
Was it love or insecurity you let me be

I walk down the road, I, Look up at the sky
Now I know why Reasoning has conquered me
I can’t and I won’t deny the fact
My heart beats a special Drum
Only for you
But I’m glad to be on my own
I have never been this free
From all suspicion & the pain grown
Year upon year

Give me space Give me time
Don’t lose yourself in anyone
Water rushes down my back, down the water runs
Walking in the rain then
Seemed beyond conception I’ve never been so alive
So much in love with life
So alive, so much in love with life
& from the gray gray sky fell the
Tear of all Tears
