Acceptance

“I Tried To Climb The Ladder Of Grief”

I was fearful of the steps of grief, it was frightening

To face the thoughts and feel the pain –

I had tried everything else,

Trying to escape not able

To think.

Climbing the ladder of

Grief.

The steps do not always

Come in order.

Sometimes I slip, falling

Back on the rings of the

Others.

When it wavers and

Then begins to fall I

Hold on with dear life.

Treading on these steps

Thinking I have achieved

Then it suddenly changes.

My mind thinks in theory

Why can’t they all happen

At once?

And then I see

There are five stages in all

Denial

Anger

Bargaining

Depression

Acceptance

Of all these –

Acceptance

Is the answer to them all!
