When We Are In It Together - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

when everything in you is complete
when every hair, bone, cartilage, nail,
skin is in place
you do not anymore mind what is happening
outside you
be it the crumbling of a hill into one vast plain
be it the eruption of a long extinct volcano
be it the rising of the oceans and the covering of all earth
be it the horrible scream and the fading gradually of silence

you stand still
watch everything and then
be one with the chaos
and the pandemonium
be one with peace
and the eternal silence

when we are in it together
will something ever matter?
