The Dark Corner

In the middle of life

You might find yourself

In a dark corner

Looking at the success of others

The beautiful life of your former friends

That now avoids you like the plague

Because you are in… that dark corner

Where they don’t want to be

Where you don’t want to be

If that is the case

My only advice is to

Find something else of value

Something that give the power

To live and thrive or

At least get by


Midlife is a sad place

In the middle of

Becoming and dying

With both ends clearly


Not being able to change

The obvious direction of things

The option of

Growing your garden

While waiting for the house

To catch fire

While the rain keeps falling

Is not a bad idea
