When Will We

by Beulah Gordon-Skinner

When will we learn
to accept life-
Our worth;
destined to face 
a world of fear
we struggle
we suffer
for days, weeks-
oft' years
when will we find 
conquerable love;
the gift of Heaven-
bestowed from above
we search
we hope 
to find an inner peace
yes, yours
not mine
together, in search
we try to believe
life's but a dream
when we discover
we are here
for a short while
the thought of death
erases our worn smiles
still we must live 
one day at a time
our own life
yes, yours
not mine.

When will we?
