Poem: Accepting the Seasons of Life

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"The #1 Cure for your Broken Heart" by Matthew Hussey, Get the guy


"Accepting the Seasons of Life"

My heartaches watching the seasons pass,
realizing my mistakes along life’s journey
wishing time could go in reverse.

As the seasons move forward
so must I,
beholding the changing scenery
accepting what my eyes see,
no matter how many teardrops
I cry.

Standing strong
like the old oak tree,
clinging to life
when a storm passes,
not weak and fragile like a twig.

Letting my heart bear the pain,
accepting the seasons of life
renewing my soul,
leaving a scar behind
to remind me of the path
my feet once traveled.
