We love things our way
We want a say always
We want what we please
We want no interference
We want life to do our bidding
But nature thinks otherwise
Time has taught us this

What happens, happens
You do what you have to do
Accept what does not happen
Accept plans gone awry
Accept what does happen and
Have the serenity to accept
What does not

Once this law of nature seeps in
The tight knot in the belly dissolves
Tension is released, and nerves relax
Our slant of life has simplified
Nothing worries or stresses anymore
We live for the now, not for tomorrow
Coming to terms once and for all

Still, we have to take a stand
Ask for God’s blessings
Move forward with a goal
Put into action what is planned
Do our best to achieve it and then
Leave the rest to God as he knows
Best when to give and when to deny!

Acceptance is not submission; it is acknowledgement of the facts of a situation. Then deciding what you’re going to do about it.
– M. Kathleen Casey
