acceptance.

Help me to not hold resentment like the back of my tongue

Help me not to hold years-long grudges,

That awkwardness that subverts any sort of relationship

From developing along;

Maybe some things aren’t to pan out

And really,

That’s okay

Maybe suspended bridges

Are how things are to stay

Help me to accept the

Unacceptable –

These almost-seeming

Irrevocable patterns

Of friendships,

Acquaintances,

Family friends

Who’ve drifted away.
