Feel It And Be Real - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

grab the latest
story, not fiction

people are plastic
write it

on your forehead
learn from them

listen, talk, be merry
when the hour comes

leave as though you
know no one

as thought there
was really no party

or meeting
miss them because you

learn a lot from them
this social ladder

this climbing without
arriving at anything

laugh with them
do not be a loser

when you are alone
spit out everything

it never does you any
good at all

but somehow
feel that you have

become an hour stronger
and then

when you close the door
shut off the light

always remember:
it is you only

you only, and no one

it is your joy
only your sorrow only

your only life
and they do not give

a damn
feel it and be real.
