Your Struggles And My Own - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

we climb this cliff
and up there let us see
what is best for us
you think about something else
like jumping off
while i stay and ponder
about the meaning of the
climbing the significance
of cliffs

if you jump off and you
think you fly away like a bird
just like that
that is your choice

if i remain here like
a stone or a vine or a worm
and think that there is something here
worth the stay
that is my choice too

oh, you fly away like a bird
and i am left
with all the guilt you are leaving me

how can you be so
treacherous and so unkind?
