Acceptance

It is not always about change;

it is about transformation.

Being one expands my range –

fulfillment is in transition.

 

Of course, I will never be the same;

and, indeed, I may be different.

Being one expands my heart’s claim –

contentment is embracing bent.

 

Some strive to make it happen;

rather than obeying, “let it be”.

Being one expands my open –

enlightenment lets me see

 

The will does not make the way;

I say instead, “Your will be done”.

Being one expands my soul’s may –

commitment engages my run.

 

Do not worry about saving face;

better to lean into acceptance.

Being one expands my embrace –

testament is a dance.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
