Corner

This word baffles me as it is positive and negative,

Like all of us it has connotations that are elusive.

“Stand in the corner” for a child is the biggest insult

That brings along with it guilt and hurt.

And this corner stays with him in a corner of his heart….

All constructions have to secure the corner

To strengthen the structure and provide the support.

And become one of the house’s most cherished spot

We feel worst when we are cornered,

And someone else is therefore honored,

All of it, as they say, is part of the game.

The best views are often from the corner of the eye,

Of people and places we wish to pry.

The corner, therefore, is as important as the center,

The lesson it teaches is the supreme winner,

And the beauty of the thought is there to savor,

That there can be no center without the corner.
