Destiny vs Choices

Along life`s dusty ol`highway
We`ll meet one huge set of destinies
..and another giant set of choices
During the uncertain walk of life
Destiny puts you in place
Choices you make refines your destiny

    Hmmm, never thought of it that way; I like a jolt now and then to get rid of the status quo; nice work Arild, you keep me thinking! Luv, Lizzie

    We all have to make choices as you say in this poem. We have to give destiny a little push sometimes. I am glad they punished the thug that killed so many in y our country. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
