Accept Acceptance

by C Cattaway   Oct 23, 2017

Acceptance is the answer
But the questions, still unknown,
Will haunt my darker memories
Of searching for my home.

A place where I could feel at peace
Was all I ever asked.
My feelings kept so hidden, that
I had to wear a mask.

I wanted to feel like I was
Necessary. Like I was
Something more than how I felt.
I guess it's my own loss.

Acceptance is the answer,
But I don't know how to be.
I wanted you to see who I was.
Someone more than me.

    A clever piece. That last stanza is particularly introspective.

    All the best
