I Accept


By SANDY ROCHELLE

I honor the stars that light the way to wisdom and the unseen.

I heed all that I do not understand with reverence and silence.

I praise the unforgettable and unknown.

I live with hope and mistrust fear.

I reject all that misleads me.

I accept the road that winds in the direction of all that I do not know.

I welcome shadows and unresolved dreams.
