They Say, Who Knows?

They say, "It's always calm before the storm."
Can this “weather” be predicted?
Who knows what's after the storm?
When will it end?
Will we live through it?

They say, “It was fate.”
Who knows what's next?
My future is unpredictable, 
No psychic can tell me otherwise.
My life is what I make of it.

They say, "If you're good, you'll go to heaven." 
What of purgatory or hell?
What kind of choices are those?
Do we even have a choice?
Who knows my after life? 

They say, "Things happen for a reason."
What reasons can they give me?
Who can give me reasons for all of the choices I’ve made?
What of the consequences behind them?
Are those reasons justified?

They say, "The eyes are windows to the soul." 
Who knows if all creatures have souls? 
Do we see with our hearts or eyes?
Can the truth be seen through one’s eyes?
Mine are wide open.

They say what they think; only opinions.  
Who knows the facts?
Who knows the answers to my questions?
Why was I brought into this world?
Who am I, and what will I make of myself?

They say this… they say that.
Who are they? 
Who knows the truth?
I don't, who does?
