Confusion As A Gift - Poem by RIC BASTASA

there is nothing
wrong with
confusion, in fact, perplexity is
a common occurrence which in some ways
give us the warning that
something wrong may happen

there are walls, these are laws,
there are fences, these are guides

when you break the wall, the thieves come
and take everything from you
when the fences are broken, the pigs come and
eat what you have planted

doubt is a mark of our humanity
confusion is our acceptance that we are but
limited creatures of thought

when you are perplexed
take laughter
think some more
give time its due
savor the peace of logic
let rules be rules

doubt, doubt some more
i am sure, you are alive.
