Fate…what is it? Can you truly answer that question for yourself, or have you never really thought about it? Is fate a supreme being that controls where we go...that knows where we will go? Or is fate just a figment created by higher thought seeking individuals bound to find answers for both the unreasonable and unperceivable events that may have happened to them during their lives?

Is fate our haven, or is it our doom? To some it is neither, but to some it is both. Not everyone, in my belief, has a significant existence. Yes, some people do create an impact on a few lives, but not the lives of the world as a whole. Very few names are ever remembered…when you think about how many total names ever existed that had the chance. I believe you have the chance to make your name remembered…but then, undoubtedly, comes the question: was I ever intended by fate to be remembered? That question alone holds too many from acquiring their sought after goals. Here is a little something I concocted that seems to relate to fate:

Today I have seen the end,
For Yesterday brought its start.
Now tomorrow won’t begin;
Our time is falling apart.

Does the above have anything to do with fate? If you think about it, our time must end eventually. Maybe not time as a whole, but individually, everyone’s time must end. What does this mean to you?

Fate is an inapprehensible subject that many will ponder about but will never fully understand. It makes us mad when we become its victims, but when we gain the rewards of hypothetical fate (or maybe it's just luck) we seem to fall in love with destiny…until it steals from us equally, or more, what we acquired in the first place. So, what exactly is the deal with fate…why does it even exist, if it's even really there to begin with? Think about this as well:

Today I have seen a death,
For Yesterday deemed it hence.
Tomorrow will bring new breath;
It’s all part of the same sequence.

This is basically the same as the excerpt above, is it not? It is more specific…talking about life distinctively, not leaving room to think larger thoughts, such as time or infinity. A few questions I have always held in my mind, before now, are: is fate a cycle? Does fate repeat itself, and if so, to the same person, or are the repetitions done to totally different people? Will fate ever answer my questions, and if it has, will the answers be noticeable or will I have to die to find them out? And finally, will fate ever end, or has it even really began? The last one is the most puzzling…it has sparked the whole meaning and existence of this writing. That is likely one of the most quizzical questions. Here is my final question (I know above that I stated my final, but this is my true final question): did fate create the creator of life, or is fate the creator of life itself?

Think long and hard on that last one… and while you're thinking, I'll leave one more question for you to contemplate: have I answered any questions for you in this writing, or are you left to muse for the answers yourself?
Got bored and felt like writing this little piece over fate in prose form instead of poetry. It's a bunch of random thoughts from my head so it may not make much sense..oh well, get over it, this was written while being doped up on tons of different pain medications, and will probably be deleted as soon as I come to my senses...until then, I hope you enjoy it :)

You only gave me more questions, hun. Very profound though. I've pondered fate before but have always left it at "Fate doesn't want me to know what fate is...yet?"
