Best Poem of RIC S. BASTASA

' The Last Dance Of Your Life '

i



you don't really have to mind
death
what power do you have for it

when it comes
it comes
none can prevent it
from sitting beside you

the doctors are honest
and sometimes
too stupid to give you a promise
for another extension of
life

a hope that poisons the mind instead
and makes
our recent stand rigid and
unreasonable

for those who have seen the light
on one hand
sees death as
a welcome experience
in fact a festivity
another coming experience
another full moon
at the bay

Read the full of ' The Last Dance Of Your Life '

The Mirror Self....

and the day comes
when you finally write this one
it looms here
inside the heart for such a long

until it finally comes out
telling you its name
its origins
its hang-ups and dreams
and you gaze at it all with pity
and it smiles at you
full of understanding saying its
name so sounding just like you...
