"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."
Henry David Thoreau

"I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, and then all at once."
John Green


Fate can change us-
Or do we change fate?
Can an already decided map
Be re-charted?

We are tumbling stones
In an raging river,
The water chooses the way.
We run from time-
But can time be changed?

Fate can tear us apart-
Or keep us together.
We given choices
And freewill.

Destiny awaits?
Or do we await destiny?
The future is what we seek
But the past is where we linger.

We fall in black,
Until a spark wakes us up.
Falling,
Falling.

Does fate lead to our end?
Or to our beginning?

Why are you sooo good? This was such a different style but perfectly written.

OMG. I'm almost done reading Divergent. And after reading this, it reminded of the novel. About the inevitable future and inescapable past.

Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments which take your breath away.

You are only as strong as your weakest link.

I love it, especially the ending question! It is great that you use imagery and descriptive language to explore a question that we have been asking for a long time. Awesome job!

The only easy day; was yesterday.

I thought this was a good poem. I believe that you have a real talent. Also to answer the question I believe destiny will find those of who are ready waiting. We shall never find destiny itself. :)
