Life's Corners - Poem by Marcia Delport

Confusion always got the better of me
This time, just this time, I wish I could see
There must be something better out there
I searched all my life, but found nothing, no - one, no where

Has life not thought me anything? I sometimes think?
I realize that again and again - every time I sink
Gasping for air, my throat keeps closing
Trying to survive - pretending, smiling, focusing

This too shall pass, they say
But how many times must unhappiness come my way?
Love is all I have to believe in...
It stands for forgiving, forgetting

Unconditional love I can’t grasp
For my soul has walked the wider path
