Do You Really Want To Know Me? - Poem by RIC BASTASA

if you know what a river is
perhaps you will know a man

i am a man and you will say to the river
i have known a man and i have known a river

there is no way that i will never you in full
you shall brag to the clouds in your mind

they drift
there is no permanence
permanence is an illusion
a river
a cloud

and this is where we must start
educating air

if you step upon my heart and tell me
i have know everything about you and you must not change and that is what you are

you are wrong
for i am a river that encircles a mountain
but i know a path but the paths do not know me

and so i keep on moving
changing paths and what path was it that you have seen yesterday
is no longer the path now

you must accept you have never known a river
because a river is man

and man is not forever man
he is a river that always escapes the hold of your mind

that frame that has walls
without even the possibility of another opening for stars....
