Accepting the Sun, the New Day

Accepting the Sun, the New Day
Accepting the Sun, the New Day

The sun rises with a deep resolve,
and life in its wake abides,
yet people often relent on the giving,
too immersed in self, to survive;
each day a cycle gleaned,
a new day of opportunity,
but some see only the pain, the suffering,
the darkness of perpetuity.

We can but choose our fate,
decide how we will live,
to either accept the responsibility,
of blame others for our well-entrenched strife;
thinking life is an affront,
rather than a gift of joyous potential,
the pain just a learning of need,
the knowledge gleaned, essential.

For all the struggling, fighting failure,
acceptance so much lessens the pain,
and realisation can delivers us,
avoid the suffering, be less restrained;
acknowledgement the key,
that we are imperfect yet free,
to learn from mistakes and through kindness,
open the door to love and in life truly see.

We are our worst enemy,
our prideful egos tether us to failure,
when all we have to do is forgive,
then learn and within ourselves find favour;
for we all have what it takes,
the answers all within,
the trick is learning to listen,
to accept and to repent the sins.

    Wonderful read –
    We are our worst enemy,
    our prideful egos tether us to failure,
    No truer words have ever been written…..

    Very nicely penned, Tony. I love the lines: “to learn from mistakes and through kindness,
    open the door to love and in life truly see.” Marvelous!
