The Effects Of Distrust .... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

the point that the finger of distrust shows
is that you become what you are
firm and unperturbed as others cannot make you
comfortable about what to do and where

you experience this way of looking at things
straight to the eye
and without any question anymore
the way you walk alone on that pavement
where you are too definite where to go
and stop

you have become a horse driving no carriage
listening to no master
there is nothing that blinds the side of your eyes
you listen to the wind and you leap upon its imagination

of a mirage, a desert that you can cross
the oasis that waits for you and the date palms with abundant fruits

there is no one now that deserves your voice
it is you and you alone that must speak and be heard
you alone that live and die
for in truth there is no one that has that ability to save you

for now, being alone is strength
a recuperation from a brokenness
a reconstruction, a redemption....
