Forbearance

Sorrow is a hollow place
An empty thought that holds no space
It leaves you bare and full of doubt
What is this life we live about?

What gives us this breath of which we breathe
What is it that we really need?
We search for something yet unknown
The search for answers not yet shown.

There is no book to guide my way
No hidden path to help me stay
Above the rising water here
No time to stop
Iíll drown I fear.

Set aside this fearful thought
Trek forward in this life untaught
And teach myself with lessons learned
To take from life that which Iíve earned.

Happiness when we have it is often taken for granted yet we struggle and fight trying to find ways of being happy, content and at ease with ourselves. Yet as humans we are filled with questions and doubts,
"What is it that we really need?
We search for something yet unknown
The search for answers not yet shown".
Great poem, I love the optimistic last verse.
