Treasure Island

Fate


I am traveling a path
That has been laid well
Before time came into existence;
Everyone seems known
Before I meet them;
Every incidence that I encounters
Are made for me before
I became a seed in my mother’s womb;
I just can’t see the end
Though its there well before
My grandma collected me
From between my mothers thighs;
Why do I feel I have born new?
The veneer I am wearing
Has been set upon me
Well before my father promised
To keep the vow and broke the cot
In the dead of a sweltering night.

    You got me thinking about something. If our lives are already planned before we're even born, then could it be that miracles are God's willingness to change the plans he made for us, if we ask Him? If we pray hard enough and ask long enough, just maybe we can change God's mind. I wonder. (Report) Reply

    So true. Not everyone can relate this to reality though. But I happen to be a staunch believer in divine providence. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
