Do not fear me

Do Not Fear Me Do not fear me, step closer and hear me, my name is Fate. I am freedom, love and wisdom. I am fear and I am hate. I give you choices, the door is open. I merely point the way. What I offer is seductive, the things that you will see… Take my hand, I will show you. Love which burns with fire and fury and with such indescribable pain… Then, I will show you love which proves eternal, exquisite and untamed…. Remember, always remember that I am Fate. I am loss, I am desire and I am keeper of the way. Choose your path wisely, let me tempt you. I hold the burning flame. Such choices before you, mere mortal tread onward to your fate. Remember the cup I offer. Strength, desire and passion. Agony, forgiveness, hope and faith… I give these things freely, remember that I am Fate. Nothing is for certain until your choice is made. And then the way is changing, ever changing, onward toward your fate. Of the things I offer, remember I am fickle for I am Fate. At times it is not to just to give, my love… But sometimes it is to take… Forward, my love, step forward. I am here to cut the chains. Let me unbind you and unwind you. Let me set you free. Reach out my love I desire you, I am beside you. I am here to let you in. Onward, ever onward. Choose your way wisely and remember... Remember, always remember. My name is Fate.

Impressive Ana-- my own strange life (well, every life is strange) has shown me that chance is the real illusion, and fate, karma, God's will, call it what you will, permeates the universe like an unbreakable gossamer thread. Oh, and welcome to the Soup Bowl!
