When life deals you a hand
You cannot help but play.
You may not quit or forfeit,
Even if everything goes astray.
When betrayal rears its ugly head,
I oft wonder …
Was it suspicion or too much faith?
What was the error that was made?
When unhappiness cocoons…
In its blanket of grief and sorrow;
Is it because contentment is amiss??
Or is it because what is happiness
Is only a bizarre guess?
Such are the dilemmas of human life…
Their answers forever elusive;
Maybe I can find them,
With insight and retrospect.
