Poem: Acceptance


Acceptance in human psychology is a person’s assent to the reality of a situation, recognizing a process or condition (often a negative or uncomfortable situation) without attempting to change it, protest. The concept is close in meaning to ‘acquiescence’, derived from the Latin ‘acquiēscere’ (to find rest in).

There is no use
in me at all;
There is no point
in me at all;
There is only
realization –
dawning deeply
rising meekly:

regretfully
I am who I am.

Unlike Descartes
who thought and was
It’s clear to me
I am not who
I thought to be
and in not being
the ideal that
I thought to think
it seems I’m naught
but thought unthought
mind undone besot
unthinked distraught.

I am dust-bin
droppings
hydrated then
animated
clock-work
coil-bound
automaton
winding down
spinning round
soulless tedium
mind-numbing
tiresome

You cannot save me
even resurrect re-wind me

I am done and undone
desiccated
dissipated
spring unsprung
string unstrung
song untongued
spiritless
barren broken
disowned unspun

You can not hear me
nor do you care to listen

these words slip
past your eyes
instantly vanish
from your thoughts
as you ponder
the potential
of last night’s
stale leftovers
to satisfy your
gnawing hunger

There is no use
in this at all;
There is no point
in this at all;
There is only
realization –
dawning fully
sinking softly:

recognizing
I am no one at all.
