For Emily - Poem by RIC BASTASA

you have all the reasons to be sad
and be afraid

like a tree
you have no roots
and where you grow
around are rocks

when the typhoon comes
you have nowhere to hold
and you cannot stand
against the harsh winds

you will be uprooted
and blown away
you will be washed away
to the river and then to the sea

because you have
not really loved
