If We Smooth The Mountain - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

if we smooth the mountain what mountain can we climb?
if we erase the wisdom of the depths of the oceans
all the unknowns, what desert can we walk upon?
if we only want the easy way out, what brave stories can we tell to their children?
tell me why you avoid the pain
and i will tell you that this can never be done

we cause pain, we are the pain in the ass, how can we deny this essence?
let them those who claim that they are the analgesics, come and deny themselves.
