  9453.     

not tough enough

when i left home
i was with

strength and then
i tread the ways of life
and met
beauty and lust
and love
desire

i thought i had what
it takes
to be tough
in all these

i plunge and
take the swim of life
in the oceans
of its depths

i join caprice and whims
and bias
and prejudice

and when age crawl
over my forehead
taking away
my hair and
aggression

i realize i am weak
i give in
to the wishes of death
i embrace
the acceptance
of my humanity

and then i give myself
a name: man

  9454.     

not well arranged days of lore

should i blame my sorrow
for not rhyming my tomorrow?

should it be the rush hours of the day
which in truth makes humanity so clumsy?

one puts a responsibility on the hour
only to feel like a powder of the flour

the days are flying like finches on the hills
how can anybody pay attention to his skills

the emotions are coming like soldiers from a war
a war that they lose, oh these bloody whore!

  9455.     

Note For Siargao (3)

there is a way to tell you the truth
i can always pretend that i do not know you
i am, as your mom says, compassionate to the
lures of a liar,

last night you told me that you have won a prize
the one that you paid for living
a life that you wished but you didn't have,

i listened attentively and when i slept late last night
i was moved to another place of having to understand you much better
and deeper

i want you to be another black bird and how i wish
that with your broad wings
you will fly away from me even without notice

note for siargao (4)

THE USUAL QUESTIONS FOR YOU

why can't you be the
lotus?

or the cat?

why can't you just
be not
like myself?

we have had
enough of mud

we never wish
nine lives

why can't you be
like an ant?

we failed to tell
you
that even in sands
there can
still be a castle.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
