Accept


Accept your lot in life,
Oh man stop pretending.
This life you lead,
Does not merit defending.

Accept who and what you are,
Be satisfied at last.
To live in peace the present,
Abandon finally the past.

    There's a lot of wisdom in these few words; the kind, it seems, one only truly starts to listen to around middle-age, when a person finally begins to fall-upwards.
