RIC S. BASTASA


The Mirror That Never Breaks


here i am
feeling abandoned

those who face me
stab me at my back
and i am hit
badly but

then
i leave them
all
smiling,

i shall not tell
the whole truth
about how i feel

it's all mine
this world
i have conquered it
with a
wry smile

there is no use fighting now
or
arguing about who i am
i found a place
where i am at a complete
rest

there is a mirror there
that receives no light from anyone
it has that inner light
that speaks
that i am doing right

it is this mirror that
matters
it never breaks

The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
