The sketchbook of American Poet Igor Goldkind

Quote

Accept!


Accept
That there is nothing you can do.
Accept
That you cannot control or know for certain the outcome of events.
Accept
That you are merely one of trillions.
Accept
That your parents are dying or already dead.
Accept
That you are dying and this all means nothing.
Accept
That you are vulnerable, shatterable to the winds of fate.
Accept
That even the mountains die.
Accept
That you are truly alone
Accept
That you will die alone.
Accept
That you will remember none of this.
Accept
What you will not accept.

  1. It was the depth of thought which I particularly like, and the use of simple language, unlike mine 😜

  2. I think I should comment that I’d like you to comment on what you liked in my poem. It helps me know when I’m getting it right. Thank you, your opinion is important even if I don’t know who you are.

    Do you know who you are?
