Anne Unknown (15-09-1995 / Den Helder, Netherlands)
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.
