Destiny's Circumstance

Mon, 11/27/2017 - 17:32 -- itry

Dear Destiny,


With words unspoken, you decide our fate

From the things we love to the things we hate 

Who we fall in love with, and who we can't stand

Our every last wish, our every last demand

But Destiny you can only do so much

Because my own hope is my biggest crutch


I have hopes, and I have dreams of who I aspire to be

And Destiny.... you can only tell my story

Destiny your only power is circumstantial 

But everything in my power is substantial


You decide how I meet people

I decide how I treat people

You can throw things at me

Have things attack me 

Have disaster slap me 

Have disappointment entrap me 

But decide how I take the journey

And decide if I'm returning 


You can tell me how I am

But I... I decide who I am

And I decide how I act

And one day I'll look back 

I'll see the past

And I will bask

In what I've done 

Because in the long run

I decided

And all you did was provided 


Until next time
