Total Acceptance

In such a car wreck as mine
you have no say-so, no line
to draw between what is now
and what will be, no know-how
or power will save you then,
nor have you say how or when;
nothing obeys your dire voice
and you truly have no choice,
but to accept what’s to come
in a state of peace, or numb,
or fearing it all, to fear
and to scream, though none will hear
whom may change what will be next,
what comes at the final text.
This is total acceptance,
this is mortality’s sense.
You cannot simply say “No”
when it is your time to go.
