A lifetime lived accepting

What others judge and fail to understand


Of that which others see as unfair trials and tribulations

Acceptance, she knows, is the fertile soil for peace

How to help them understand;

To foster love and with it serenity

In hearts that have hardened

Like clay soil baked in the hot sun

Even this she accepts,

She knows she cannot make them see

Her heart is old and wise, not given to despise

Those whose paths have not been as long or as winding

Acceptance allows her to put aside the judge’s robes

And lay her gavel down
