no need for Niebuhr

Written by: andrew delapruch

self, 
exist with the reality that things
can be
changed.

self,
gain courage, develop strength &
wisdom will come in the process of
knowing that one can never truly
know enough---
one must always be learning.

self, 
know that “surrender” eliminates
focus, know that this world is 
how we make it,
here,
now,
alone & together,
without any metaphysical recourse.

self,
if there is to be a concept like “trust,”
know that you must invest it in yourself
first---know that each day is a step in
your direction, 
be it an error to learn from or a successful
move to hail & use to strategize the next.

self,
know that there is no need to
“accept the things that cannot be changed,”
if you truly don’t want to &
you act on this premise.
