There And Back Again - Poem by Kennedy Phadima

Sometimes confusion feels my mind
Anger and hatred feels my heart
Instead of love and peace
I loose my sense of direction
and begin to feel no affection

I `ve been told
life is series of trying
to make up your mind
life is a wheel of circumstances
one after another
but how can they teach me about life
when they dont know how to live it
How can anybody teach somebody
about love
when they dont know
how to love one another

You `ve got to love yourself
then love somebody else
and yes,
love is good but it hurts
life is great but its unfair
but love must be felt and
life must be lived
Just as the truth must be told.
