Acceptance is the Greatest Gift

To understand without judgment
Is the hardest art of all.

Stop being hero savior
Catching others as they fall.

Denying someone’s honesty
Is to be a pushy bitch.

To think that you can heal their wounds
Means you want to be a witch.

I am chastened now and quiet,
Hosing down my own damned street.

Asking you for the same regard
When in life we chance to meet.


  1. I love your craft/poetry...Tweeted and +1'd this...rock on, Sis...xoxoxo

  2. Thank you so much, Janet. I gain so much from your input and that of so many people.

  3. Good one - I like it a lot !!

  4. Thanks. I'm reading a book that's teaching me a lot. I don't want to be angry any more, I'll take whatever works.
