Pretend That It Is Not Important, .... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

to something that you do not want to lose
give it
its non-importance, take it for granted,
no one minds it, no one likes to take it,
it stays,
no one is interested, because you make it
not interesting,
so? you'll keep it for years
and it will be yours,

what we take as important
they will always consider taking it away from you
the secret is in the pretenses

when you are ready to dispose it
everyone begins taking other things from you

this pain thing, this motive to inflict pain
this is what they always want to do.

    different people perceive things differently. Thinking the Pizza as a fried chicken, though there are few chunks of chicken in it, is something hilarious! (Report) Reply

    most people want to inflict some kind of pain on someone, but if you take all the pain, give all you can give,
    then you must have truly lived. in this world all you really need is love. anybody who as not got love
    would give anything and everything and take any pain given just to have that love.
    And when you have that love you can take all the pain in the world for that love.
    a great poem.

    The meaning of this poem confuses me a lot. If we do not give importance to the precious things, ideas, invention and the rest that we possess, , people will not be aware of this and we can keep it as long as we like.
    Don't you think that it is very selfish?
