What is forgiveness without acceptance?
What is acceptance without forgiveness?
What is judgment alongside ignorance?
What is ignorance alongside judgment?
For the highest of places
May not hold all graces
and the lowest of holes
may not be, the lowest of forms
Painters paint life through a brush
and Songs tell of life with a crush
writers with each seamless verse
and artists through motion, paint, music, and words
lethal actions and words
healing actions and verse
but wait! you are not alone
can’t you see in this life we live
only our minds will get what we give
So when you find yourself alone
perhaps with another or simply at home
kindly remind yourself
that the story that matters most
is the one we create on our own
for unkind words and hateful souls
may only speak, but for a while
but loving hearts and careful thoughts
will create a legacy beyond the idle
forgiveness without acceptance
acceptance without forgiveness
judgment alongside ignorance
ignorance alongside judgment
Thankfully We are Alive
is another day
