If there is one thing I have learned,
It is that you have to accept things in life,
I accept I have a hard time now,
The nightmares and the awful emotions,
The hellish thoughts that cloud my mind,
The bleeding I have done myself,
I accepted all of this.

I accept I am healing,
I don’t have non-stop dark thoughts,
I don’t have newly made scars on my arms,
I can grin now, so others don’t worry,
But I accept also that I might never heal completely.

I accept my dreams,
And when I have nightmares of my demise,
I accept that that moment might be my death,
So I survive the night of acceptance.

I accept my situation that I am in,
And yet I can’t stop hoping a better setting,
A brighter future on the horizon,
I accept my hope.

I would not have survived this dark age of mine,
If not for the acceptance within me.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
