Thread of acceptance



I saw them first in the park
On a beautiful spring morning;
A very good looking couple
That grabbed everyone's attention
The man looked extremely polished
Reserved and quiet
The woman was a wild bird
Laughing loudly, without any restraint
Fleeting here to there
Always up to some mischief.
I could often hear them
Bickering with each other
On silly, meaningless subjects
Till they were worn out
And headed towards home.

I observed them every Sunday
Month after month
As they bickered and debated;
I frantically searched for the glue
That held them together
Despite the silly fights.
It was after my chat
 With the lady one evening
I learnt that there was no glue.
It was the pious thread of acceptance
That kept them together
They loved to fight
As much as they loved to love
None wanted to change anything 
About each other.

  9. Beautifully written! And nice thoughts, in a relation it's important to ask less questions and respect each other as they are rather than asking them to change.

  10. Acceptance definitely comes from debates and arguments, for those bickerings make one realise the futility of the effort.

  12. The idea of a relationship is to accept the other person as they are because that is what attracted them to you. Trying to make changes will only hurt the arrangement.
