Acceptance Is a Difficult Thought - April 30, 2011

Acceptance Is a Difficult Thought

In all of the directions of what you want to tell me
Comes anything that looks better in motion
Although I am torn by the reasons
I try hard to project
Fact is, there are moments I yield to emotion

I can relax out of earshot of any kind of danger
That does not scatter or burn anyone else
Yet I am not meaning to remember
Why all the hours acknowledge
What I don't know, 'cause I won't tell myself

Acceptance, my sweetheart is a difficult thought
Believe me; I know what has to be done
While held under the watchful eye
Of the hand tightly holding
Love's gun

  1. I think we all at times yield to emotion Neva

    Good thoughtful poem

  2. Acceptance is a daily struggle, as each person is another universe, deep and beautiful poem.

  3. Lovely, thoughtful poem. I used to try and control emotions but as the years tick by they seem to come more to the surface, so I now accept them for what they are.

  4. "What I don't know, 'cause I won't tell myself"

    hehe I understood that line very well. I'm very good at refusing to 'know'.

  5. That something is believable and should be accepted as true effects every one of us in some way or another, except we do not always yield to whatever the source may be.
    Beautiful as ever Neva
