Some Notes Why We Shy Away... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

perhaps we shy away because
we did not get much

oh that is wrong, we already
got much

or perhaps we wanted more than
enough, or more than that much

so we shy away like that and leave
the giver with a heavy conscience

but we have our own miserable fault
or faults if i really have to account

for that, oh, when she got sick we
shied away, oh, when she got too lonely

did we care? we did not, too pay
attention to her needs of warmth

of flattery, which those who want
to take something from her are

very much willing to give, and we
thought we are not like them,

we shy away because we tell the
truth and we hurt.
