ways of living XI

Written by: andrew delapruch

the self-fulfilling prophet
who estimates situations
& then switches their own
perspective so as to suit
the outcome---
operating within the same 
lens of which they already 
had established prior to
entering into anything,
really, that first step out of
the bed in the morning
can be reduced to a 
logical statement 
assessing the whole of
one’s life, every single
step of the way---never
passing up the chance
to beat oneself up &
then to substantiate the 
action by proving 
oneself to be right 
about it, after changing
one’s perspective to
suit the beating in the 
first place.
