I was inspired by that old question: "When you're dead, would you rather be hated or forgotten?". Thanks for stopping by!

Perhaps it's a futile effort to attempt understanding of our place and purpose, but it's only human to ask! And do we *really* want to know? Thanks for stopping by and congrats on your win!

I did about half-a-dozen different takes on a "Destiny" haiku, before finally settling on this one. Glad you liked it.
