I've always asked myself is there a thing as fate
Is everyone not responsible for his or her destiny
If it were possible the future you could anticipate                                                            
If that were something that a person could foresee

Like the path that you choose to destroy or deviate
When your looking for home, a place of sanctuary
And it ends up being filled with emptiness and hate                                      
But guess everyone can have a sense of uncertainty
I was told things you earn nothings handed on a plate
And remember not every day will always be so sunny
Don't make rash decisions try and at first contemplate
And yet again yeah it's that same old age philosophy

Another avenue taken though one would still desolate
Because your feeling lost and now you are so unhappy
Ending up in such bad way, that you are in a right state
Still looking for absolution, but if it were that elementary


But waiting in anticipation then just realising your too late
If you had ceased the moment, what could or may not be
Like that of an encounter like if you meet your soul mate
Was it just coincidence again one questions the irony

A mental image in your head a picture that you always paint
letting chance take its toll  but not what you expected really
Again one being told at times perhaps its better to just wait
I guess that’s the element of surprise, apart of the mystery

 Kind of like a part two to fate 98 and a bad case of nostalgia
with this im trying to close a chapter but also question
which I always have is there such a thing as fate 
you know if i went down this road or this avenue
would things have been differed[nt  perhaps if things were mapped-
out there would be no element of surprise
Perhaps just me being brought up again with so many mixed messages
uncertainty of everything it were like the movies a meets b an along comes c
and every thing is hunky dory  but yeah its not reality inspired by other writes

    Destiny is a fickle lady. She will take you on a wild ride. But at each stop you will find a new experience. Allan

    Yes, the sense of uncertainty keeps us going, keeps us wondering, keeps us discovering! Beautiful one. Always, Laura
