The path to acceptance

woodland-path

The path to acceptance

Leads us through the darkened and tangled brambled paths

Of disappointment

Where we were led by desire, hope and longing

Naively and innocently believing all would be well

The path to acceptance

Leads us deep into a dark tunnel of loss and grief

Terribly painful to face

And agony to feel

The path to acceptance

Leads us to a deep ocean

Of tears, sadness and emptiness

That feel as though they will

Drown us completely

The path to acceptance

Leads us through the hell like fires

Of anger and rage

Where we fight with all our fury and will

Against what fate decided it would steal from us

To teach us essential lessons

Of deep surrender

That can only come to

Us long years after we have wrestled

With the tangled demons and ghosts of our past

And hauntings

We longed to forget

But so badly needed to remember

In order to heal our torn fragments

The path to acceptance

Finally leads us to an open meadow

By a running stream

Where we can lie down

And find rest

After all the entire struggle is done
