RIC BASTASA


Believing - Poem by RIC BASTASA

start with the basic
belief in yourself
that no matter how
hard things are
you can always do
it and get the
taste of success

soon you realize
despite
every fall and
wound
and painful
things have been
there is still
this comfort
of how we look
at things we
give meaning
and how we
put color to
what is there
and sense its
smell
we get the picture
of who we are
and what we have
become

what is important
is
we still have ourselves
as walls
houses and beds
and windows
opening
towards this
galaxy of
meanings

the confidence
within
is indestructible
feel it
today, tomorrow,
forever

be constant as
your soul
is intact
unbroken spirit
unwavering
to the destiny
reserved for us
there
