Giving And Keeping - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

i am not
i am offering you
all these
you know what are
all these
from the beginning
of the grass
and worms

i am leaving you all these
my treasures
they cannot hurt you
neither did they hurt me
for i am not
for i am never a slave
for all

they are not mine
neither shall they be yours
even if you keep
conceal them
sell them when the right
time comes

our fruits are never ripe
our trees
forever tall.
