Acceptance Speech

Acceptance Speech

in the end,
it is an acceptance speech
when someone dies
and the internal struggle
finally wins
the anger has to cease
and acceptance begins
fuelled by a reach –
in the reserves of love
standing in front of –
a tear stained crowd
greif screams aloud
it is not a eulogy
it is an acceptance speech
in the end –
it is the only way to heal
it is the last gift
to give to someone so young
who in the end,
sadly could not fight anymore
accepting them –
for who they were
it is understanding who we all are
in the end,
you have to accept
and give your acceptance speech
some people leave
before anyone ever expected
