After Julia Roberts - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

i see children this Christmas season
so happy with their gifts, opening their boxes,
and exhilarated with toys,
beside their doting moms and proud papas

something stings me and it is not a bee,
i look away and tells myself this:

i have a different reality
i have a different reality
there is no reason to be sad
no reason ever to be lonely

i shall be back in Bali and talk
to my Ketut and i shall wear a smile
and hear the sound of the sea.

through this, i shall be my happier self.
Ketut, i shall eat, love and play.
