Acceptance

Spread the love

self-acceptance

Acceptance is what we crave;
Echo: Rave
Often it comes at final stage.
Echo: Age

Acceptance is harder than you think;
Echo: Ink
Loyalties change before the eye can blink.
Echo: Link

Shattered hopes can make us grieve;
Echo: Eve
These thoughts refuse to take their leave.
Echo: Leave

We struggle to get a grip and stand;
Echo: And
Acceptance is letting go of sand.
Echo: Sand

Often the world can be so cruel;
Echo: Rule
Acceptance is learning to keep your cool.
Echo: Cool

For acceptance is hardly a flawless face;
Echo: Ace
Time shall offer us strength and grace.
Echo: Race

  1. So very true it is seldom flawless and often a last resort when we feel we have no other option than to accept it. What a cool structure. I read the second line like a call and response truly echoing the extra word which is a really cool effect. May have to steal that idea. Haha

  2. Well you certainly had fun with this one. Acceptance is of course two way we can’t expect people to accept our characteristics without us accepting theirs. Vive la difference!

  3. Interesting form, kiddo. I especially resonate with the lines acceptance comes with age – that is so true. Even when it comes to acceptance of self. So well done!

  5. The image that looms in the background for me is the hour glass.

    sand slips
    time flows beyond our grasp
    love is steady

    your words speak of wisdom and truth.

    A different kind of form that gives a dialogue to the reader.
    Very nice
