“It is what it is,” they say

Well, I’m beginning to take this to heart


It won’t help to hang to the pleasure

It won’t help to fight against the pain


It is what it is, better to look deeply

at whatever is transpiring than to slip

into mania or depression


Neither is what we need

Both can be destructive


It is what it is, I say

Right now I sit quietly with my feelings

Both pleasure and pain will teach me


They will teach me if I let them
