Not a Victim

To accept today the things that are,
And in the light of this what I can do,
When I turn efforts to what I find real,
There’s hope I can assess and see it through.

If I see the day all beaten and resigned
To what reality reveals to me,
How can I rise up and face the challenge,
Not seeing how a thing desired can be?

God give me grace to see reality,
Not as a victim of the circumstance,
To accept and grasp the possibility,
A place to gather strength or to advance.
