OUR TRACED PATH

OUR TRACED PATH*


My fellow men,
Travelers are we 
On life’s journey well planned in advance  
Without our consent,
Let us 
Obediently follow our traced path
Resisting not our fate    
For
Easier this trip to make!

    I believe that God has planned out our lives and it's up to us to trace it. Whether we follow through on his planned path is up to us. Very good poem!!

    My dearest friend, I totally agree"On life’s journey well planned in advance, Without our consent". we have come and get lead by something. Some says it is "Karma" of the previous birth. Some claim, it is God's plan. I of course do not know the answer. But what ever the reason, without question I walk on the path given to me, and I try to smile even if I have to stagger. This is once again philosophy. Thank you

    I agree, fate has its own own path for us and we will follow it no matter what we do! I know we think we have our path determined by our own making, but I believe that fate has its influence in our determination of things and our actions! And there are things that happen beyond out control, which are also part of fate's design! This is an excellent write based on this subject, I really enjoy a good poem about fate...as this one is an excellent write about it! What a powerful piece, Great Work!!

    My dear friend, how right you are! Freedom and determinism is a philosophical problem more that 2300 years old! I have written a paper 35 pages on the subject in French! No matter what, it still remains a problem. For me it is clear though it isn't a problem! Thank you for your kind words!

    I'm not sure if fate exists. One fate we all suffer is death. In the meanwhile, let us enjoy the trips. Nice thought and thanx for sharing.
