Live the Life you Love and Love the Life you Live


That one could ever triumph over fate
Is a foolish thought
an impossibility.

Fate is the most devious devil
the most mischievous marauder
the most fraudulent fiend
The most sly scoundrel.

Fate will feign gentleness
and one might feel safe

but then
faster then the coming tide
you will be thrown overboard
and left to slowly suffocate
In Fate’s fickle waters

Until
Once more
Fate Pulls you back aboard
Onto a Shape-Shifting Ship
On an uncharted adventure.


The author's comments:
Maybe it is fate that you are reading this, or maybe not. For example, in the autumn the leaves fall, as they do every year, only to be reborn in the spring. In truth, all fate is is beginnings and endings. The where, when, how and why can be changed. Everything in nature will eventually pass, but that does not mean that one does not have the power to fight against it. Some give up on the impossible battle, but some continue to fight. The battle is indeed impossible, for in the end fate will triumph. Yet the purpose of this battle is to prolong the end, and to make one’s fight worthwhile. “That one could ever triumph over fate/is a foolish thought/an impossibility.” Just because something is impossible doesn’t mean that one shouldn’t try. Life is a battle, and the harder you fight the more you will be able to accept the ending. Maybe when November’s harsh winds blow the last leaf off the tree, the leaf surrenders with a sigh of relief, eagerly awaiting its eternal sleep, or, yet again, maybe not.
