Treasure Island

Mandi Ducroq

(9 April 1974 / Cape Town)

Acceptance


Accept me for who I am
I'll do the same for you
Don't try to change at all
Just to yourself be true

We all have faults and failings
It's what makes us all so real
No one can be perfect
With this we have to deal

I love you with your weaknesses
I've learned that I have mine
We all learn to deal with change
It just takes a little time

So be patient with yourself
And I'll be patient too
You've given me the greatest gift
The perfect gift of you

    Acceptance is what we all look for! The good things usually just fly by, then how come the bad things seem to stay around? Most of the time we are afraid to admit our weaknesses, we try to hide, yet, why? when we can find someone who accepts us for who we really are! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
