FROM THE CORNER
The corner is a familiar place,
Where I once was made to face.
Now it is a place of control,
Where I can watch the greater fool.
Used as punishment in school.
What I learned was “break the rules.”
There always is a price to pay.
Having something to say.
Turning corners changing views.
Brings energy; dreams renew.
Looking back as I grow old,
I only wish I’d been more bold.
From the corner of the room,
From the worries in your mind,
A world you’ll leave behind.
