Accepting It

So hard to admit that you are gone for good,
Questions unanswered that change my mood.
Friendship lost and now it is time to admit,
That as the world turns I am now accepting it.

Made believe stories of standing tall,
Reasons that tore emotions that hit the wall.
Once had the notion to wear it if the shoe fits,
And now it hurts so much, but I am now accepting it.

Dreams that became nigthmares with the flicking light,
No more hopes left as the will fades into the darken night.
Challenges lost without a fight, or without getting hit,
My battles can no longer be won and I am now accepting it.

No need to cry or to let the tears reach the floor,
It is so obvious that you have locked the front door.
There won’t be another shoe that will feel like the right fit,
So I will go barefooted even if it hurts since I am not accepting it.

Some things we have to accept, others we try to accept, some we shouldn’t accept, now its up to you to accept.

    Oscar this hits home for me…..I am trying to take this journey now ……:) x

  • Yes, I knew that, remember you telling me about it, have kept it private as I told you so, and we both have differences of how accepting what hurts the most becomes so hard. I wrote this with tears in my eyes after a year and three months I miss my Maria, I’m having so much lost sleep, it hurts, i cry still, sometimes there is no one to talk too, so I write, I remember, I smile, I cry again, and it continues, I feel for you too and your pain, God help us all, thank you for reading and commenting, feels good to hear from a friend, thanks, it really helps, thank you again.

    This one hurt, because it’s so true. Sometimes accepting the truth is so hard, but it’s also the only way. Brilliant write. xo

  • Yes, it is so true how each one of us has to accept them in some way and form or it will consume us in the end. I know we have to start over, i try but I have failed, I still cry, it hurts and some days I accept this, then on other day, I just can’t and I cry again. Thank you for reading this and commenting, I feel for your pain too, bless you, and thank you again.

    Sometimes things just can’t be fixed – not because you didn’t try or because you ‘failed’ but because they’re not meant to be. It’s better to let it go and keep the good memories, than to try and take it apart or to try and fix something that just won’t be fixed. No matter how much it hurt, acceptance will in the end bring relief and a chance to be happy again. Hugs. Sybille

  • Your advice is so pleasing to my ears, and I wish it to be and that I can pick up the pieces and become a whole person again. Memories will always be there, I shall try to let go of the things that hurt so much and I hope to be happy soon so that I can enjoy what the future still has for me. Thank you for your words of comfort, bless you and thanks for the hug, it does the body and the mind good.

    WOW … this really made an impact with me … seems to go right along with where I am right now. I feel the hurt in this and I totally understand it and I am so sorry that you had to feel it but your wisdom and outlook that you share with us each time you write shows such strength and I think it is because of experiences like this… I hope your writting this helps to release some of that hurt Oscar cause of your unhappiness I am NOT ACCEPTING IT !!! I want you to smile right now stamps her foot :) You are not alone my special friend always know that ((((((((HUG))))))))))

  • I have delayed answering this, wanted to read it more than a couple of times. I know you were feeling this, and I thought it best to allow you to accept it, so to speak, because being the same shoes gives us experience. We might not like it, however; as the days get longer, we have to fun answers to our problems, hearing from friends here really helps, and of course just your voice from your keys vibrating and letting me know you are still there trying to make it, makes me feel better. Take it from me, we need to find some things that keep us busy, they work for a while. I stopped going to play golf and my problems balooned, I when yesterday and my mind was occupied with me shots that I really forgot too many of my problems. I will go bowling soon and that help too, I don’t have to spent so much money, I just have to find the time to enjoy some things that require the mind and heart to be in. Get the most for my buck, the say it more clearly. No matter how the funding of these events come by hard, I find it to be relieving, I cut my expenses some where else and if I find more time to do other thing that don’t require money, like disc golf, you would be surprised how easy and fun it can be. Thank you for the patience to hearing from me, I wanted you enjoy your writing that makes it nice to read, just wrote a new one a few minutes ago, anyways keep the mind busy, talk to you later. Thanks for everything.

    Hugs you Oscar. This reaches out to sooo many and perhaps while painful, still a gift of bringing together so many people in a moment of truth and understanding. Life is like this at times for everyone . A beautiful write, where all our ‘differences’ wash away and into a moment of real heart and life. Brilliant my friend. :) xo

  • Your response really enlighten my day, my mind, it just feels good to read what you have stated. I appreciate the hugs, placed my arms around myself and made believe you were reaching out, thank you so much for reading my writes, you rock in my world.

  • Thank you so much for this feature, I am still wiping the tears after reading this. The feature makes me feel that people will at least take a look at what I was trying to emotional expressed.
