She Accepts by James Dennis Casey IV

She Accepts

Fate
A cruel
Proficient potter

A wise man
Strives
To perfect his soul

Kneading his heart
Like a lump of clay
Hard as the middle of thunder

Pride keeps him
From making peace
Closely embraced
Much too close
To bare his eyes

Behold afar
Heaven and Earth
As wine
He offers her a cup

With wealth enough
To ease all pain
She accepts

Softening his heart
Making it easier to mold
