Long before…

In the unfinished

before the credits scroll past

can you choose acceptance

without an end,

before the conclusion

without approval from the crowd?

Between the ribs, within

deeply, a voice

the one you used to hear

before you thought the others

were the ones that mattered.

Knew better and overruled your soul.

Before you decided

who you weren’t going to be.

  1. Acceptance comes and goes, and I think it depends on how confident in a moment of time. It changes over time and sometimes that has got to do with what we face. Lovely poem as usual, and this one seems a bit deeper than some of the others.
