Serenity's Key

Serenity's Key

It is what it is
and so it shall be.
Thus, acceptance today
is serenity's key.
Its not carved in stone,
as each day breaks anew,
for hope comes to life
with each dawn in debut.
Blessings abound
in the light of the day
to the heart that would seek
in a grateful array.
Yes, it is what it is
and today it shall be...
but the grateful of heart
hold serenity's key.

Yes! It is what it is and should not be any other way. I loved your poem, it feels as calm and serene to read it as are the words you wrote.

Beautiful.

A kindly reminder to take each day as it comes, to not worry about tomorrow, or annexed over what has been. But to except, and enjoy the day that is. Wonderful Poem Tender Heart

Tnderhrt, I really needed to read this with the month I have been having. It struck chords deep within me and I thank you for the reminder. Sometimes I let things get too big and out of hand - brightest blessings my friend.

The Serenity Prayer, One day at a time, is by far, to me, the most beautiful prayer ever written. Now, if we can learn to do that. It's a goal to reach for. Thank you Marsha. Your poetry is beautiful. You touched my heart once again.

Something about this one said: "read me out loud." So I did, and it was jolly good fun infused with a certain meloncholy. Excellent as always, poetess.
