  5997.     

for those who are dead and gone

we who are steadfast to life
despite the pains
we sing you our last hymns
as tribute to your courage
that never really lasted
you your lifetime

and then we gather again
after you are buried with all grace
with all our innate respects

we think upon ourselves
what future lies ahead of our journeys
we dust off every guilt that you leave us
from our sandals and feet
we go again and walk the paths of our lives
sticking to life and singing the hymns
vibrant and full of hope
each moment is cherished
each vision made clear
for all of us who remain here
we would have wanted life to be forever
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  5998.     

FOR THOSE WHO ARE WISE

for those who are wise
are the very first to admit
they do not know much
just a little pinch of salt
to taste,

for those who are young
they do not talk about age at all
for those who are healthy
the medicine is not an issue

for those who are rich
money is not an issue
for those who are intelligent
the I.Q. is a taboo
for those who speak much
their inside is hollow
for those who listen much
everything is taken as such

for those who are dying
life becomes the most precious thing
for those who are fooled
to honesty must be glued.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  5999.     

for those who do not understand

like birds on a new land
they have doubts whether to hop in or not
but the wings are tired
the claws are numb
and there is no choice
except to rub their feathers
against the cold wind
blink to reconsider
that after all
there is no other shadow of a land to see
and out there is the deeper horizon
gray then black then
empty
one bird decides to dive
fall on the water
and then
catch the first fish

of course the rest follow
and then
the community begins
to take shape

like any body like any ant
or sand
or mound of earth
or the first birth of the
whirl and the
twirl
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  6000.     

for those who finally quit

what is then the next thing
to do? retire
retreat
and hide?

consider this
what i did when i too feel like
the same thing that
you have

i retire but only to recuperate
i retreat only to evaluate
and hide but only to recharge
what energy i have lost

the next morning i shall move
again
another timing and strategy
another hope
and expectation that finally
luck shall be on my side
that fortune awaits those
that persist
that there is always a place
for those who wait
and do things again
despite.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
