Accept and Adapt

Author:

The world we live in today
is the world we will live in tomorrow
who we meet and greet
is who will lead us through the day
don't make the effort for people to stay
what you embrace is what is going to make your life go from black to gray
not every day is going to be a good day
Walk with the power within you
love every moment of what you do
And what about today and this very moment?
Evolve, change and admit
We are all crazy just a bit
Take on the world and make the most of it
Tomorrow the new you awaits you
Accept and adapt to the brand-new


accept-and-adept

Sometimes life is a sinking boat
without a single quote
to keep you afloat
but you keep fighting with a raincoat on
and paint your life with a crayon
The beautiful war we live is bitter
and no place or time can fit in
We gotta begin
Since great changes begin only from within

I agree with you, John. Nothing will ever be the same and everything that happens happens for a reason. By accepting we automatically adapt and life becomes something completely different.

A very relevant poem in the current situation. We have certainly been forced to make changes to adapt, and life will never be the same again but we have to make the most of it. Good job. I love that painting of the boat, and the first image as well.

Totally agree with you, Lorna. Thank you!

I think our world will never be the same again, however, we will learn to adapt, evolve and embrace it. A wonderful poem with a powerful message.
