Surrender

I think of the word “surrender”.
One wants to surrender to the moment
By surrendering the past and the future
By first surrendering to the past and future
Because when you surrender to something
You accept it for what it is
You understand the past for what it is
You don’t try to make it something it is not
It is not any thing
It is only what we make it
See the contradiction?
You understand the future for what it is
Which is only our making-of
Surrender to it
And another contradiction arises
But it can be resolved, as can the other, by realizing
That we surrender to ourselves
