Acceptance

God in His infinite wisdom
Did not make me very wise-
So when my actions are stupid
They hardly take God by surprise

    When a sound is not made
    A hound shall sound
    So do as the hound
    And make a sound

    We crave for acceptance by others
    We can be accepted if we be ourselves
    Not who they want us to be
    We should be accepted
    As us, not them
