Learning To Ride - Poem by RIC BASTASA

learning to ride
you always have
a fear an attempt
and a fall
from time to time
wherever whenever
so normal
falling and
hurting yourself

after trial & error
riding becomes
too familiar
and you like it
maybe but for
a time
riding is nothing
but a thing
we always do
because we simply
have to

then just as when
the fear is lost
you sleep & leave
the excitement
you take
things as daily
boring matters
and there you
the grip of cautiousness
about what was
once exciting &
even fearful

that is when
the accident happened
the time
when everything
is so normal

you may even
kill yourself.
