Musashi Maxim #1: Accept

27 Aug

“1. Accept everything just the way it is.” ~Miyamoto Musashi, Samurai

Musashi Maxim #1: Accept

Even if you think things shouldn’t be the way things are
Even if you think someone’s behavior’s too bizarre
Even if you think someone else could trying more
Even if you’re sick and tired of being so sore

Even if you miss them so much that it causes pain
Even if some selfish person’s driving you insane
Even if you want just one thing but just cannot reach
Even if you’re lead by those who don’t do what they preach

Accept it just the way it is instead of how it should
Be and for your own code be certain that ground is stood
Accept that others won’t expect as much from their own selves
As someone like a warrior who ponders and who delves

Who thinks deeper and tries harder and knows that “good enough”
Is consolation for all those who aren’t quite as tough
As Warriors who save their strength to fight the battles in
Themselves and just accept others battles they cannot win
