Acceptance

Acceptance seems so easy
Yet, it’s so hard
Accepting joy, pleasure and ease
Not a problem
But what about when it comes to things
We don’t like

What about when things contrary to
Our wishes come to pass
What about when nothing goes
The way we planned

What about when it rains day and night
And there is not sign of the sun

What about when hardship comes to visit
And decides to stay
What about when nothing seems to change
Not matter how much we pray

What about when we don’t understand
Someone’s reaction or beliefs
What about when we don’t think
The same way

Perhaps the secret of acceptance
Is expecting different views and thoughts

Realizing that we may not see life
The same way someone else does

Perhaps the secret of acceptance
Is not thinking we know all the answers

Not thinking that what we wanted
Was best for us

Perhaps the secret of acceptance
Is trying to find the silver lining around the clouds

Perhaps acceptance means digging deeper
Becoming stronger, and
Discovering gems we didn’t think we had

Perhaps acceptance is the result of humility
And our willingness to learn the lessons of life
