Serenity Prayer (new-prompter perk for May Bear In Chair Prompt Call)


so prays a man
who thinks if one person
cannot change a thing
it cannot be changed
and must be accepted

know better
we know we must act together
but someone must begin

one candle will not light the way
across the Red Sea at night
but others may light their candles
from that first taper

we march
each with our own light
to shed on the problem

wisdom we need
courage we need
but if we serenely accept
that there are things we cannot change
then these things will never change
to hell with serenity
