Our Shelter Is The Purpose Of Our Creation - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

IT is the intention to gain
that makes one creative,
and so when the gain is taken
one sulks back to his
stagnant self,

the intention to be happy
is one thing too,
as though the purpose of having this life is simply
that when one is sad, life becomes

a slave of feeling, a roller coaster of emotion
one is a rider,
when the ride is over, what then is next?

the roller coaster stops
one gets out from his seat and bind

you take a walk, remembering the highs and lows
and this soon shall stop

there is no roller coaster in the house where we live
will there be no excitement anymore
when we feel nothing
shall life and dreams cease too?

we are not our creators
we are created for a purpose
and this we must discover
and there we shall take shelter.
