(aah) You Are The One - Poem by Edwin Alba Empestan

Amidst the stream of humanity
There can come, one that can be a mess
Rudely and awkwardly can derailed 'one' into oblivion
Like a dam he can control the free flow of a rushing river

A sudden brake that can jolt the total riders
Here he is a carefree and unaware of his created jolt
Numbed by his cruel life experiences and memories
Or just simply his don't care attitude and stubborness

Pity him but don't get irate he is just a small mind
That needs to be fed like a pig to become fat
Fat with accepted wisdom and cultured manners
You know him and you know what to do with him

The rest will determine you patient and tolerance
Or you could just bail out like an awry meteor in space
But fall I beg of you, into the desert where there's only inanimate
Or into the ocean of forgetfullness and complete amnesia
