The Facts - Poem by RIC BASTASA

to live
and to learn to live alone
and to learn to live alone with all courage

in peace and in harmony with the rhythm of the rain
and the song of the sunshine
to be what you are and simply be what you are
imitating no one
depending on nobody

nobody but you
nobody nobody but you

it is simple
indeed it is very simple
stick to the facts
be real
stick to the reality of what you are
rather than what you ought to be

too much pressure and you explode
listen to your heart
be calm
be cool

hold your hands
cover your ears
and nose

then jump.
