Diminishing - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

you do not have to obey the law of diminishing returns
on your material resources
that limit themselves
to their utility & breakability

you are not the harsh object of the law
you are human
and miracles are made & meant
for you

and so today do not think of your hurt feet & scarred hands
dream of the gossamer wings that will make you fly

your eyes in truth do not only see
they also feel
like your heart that does not only beat for this kind of life

all that is found in you
is not only darkness and dampness
if you only open your heart
hard enough
you have always been designed & meant for what is beyond

the ordinary grasps of humanity
these miracles of dreams & hopes & anticipations

they do not diminish, they add & grow
and they even multiply as many as you wish
