Everythign Happens For A Reason - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

births and unbirths
life and death, massacres and adoptions
pregnant women and death of old deserted people
the rise to power
the fall of dictators
the numbness of the people
the hope that others give for free
the lust and passion
the love and hate and indifference and succor
whatever, whatever, whenever, whoever
all these
do not happen in random
all is written
and all is fulfilled
God and demons
angels and cockroaches
lice and tadpoles
cocoons and snakes,
all these happen for a reason
we too
and them
those who believe and those who do not
all these happen
because they are meant to be

and so i watch and stand and sit and think and let all these go
accept and smile and sleep and dream and then die

all these happen for the reason
and i therefore, do not worry
there are always reasons
and so i no longer ask why.

i am now, the silent spectator.
