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?"

Just a quick note...I think this actually belongs in non-fiction, philosophical...if there's a category for that. Fiction isn't quite the place for it...

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.

This sentence tripped me up because it's a question but there's no question mark.

Not everyone, in my belief, has a significant existence.

It's 'existance', I think...and I'm not sure about saying 'belief.' 'in my opinion' feels a little better.

Yeah, some people do create an impact on a few lives, but not the lives of the world as a whole. I'd prefer 'yes' over 'yeah' here, it matches the tone of the piece better. 'Yeah' is very colloquial.

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.

Do you mind if I just here, do a quick revise of this few sentences? Not of their content, but just of punctuation and whatnot. Let me know, eh?

our time must be doomed to end eventually. I think 'our time must end eventually' says what you need just as well, because 'doomed' adds in a lot of implications that I'm not sure were intended.

Suggest a paragraph break between 'What does this mean to you?' and your continuation in that paragraph? Leaves a nice bit of space for people to ponder just that.

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 its even really there to begin with? Think about this as well:

I'd like to do an example revision of that too, but again, only with your permission.

Does fate repeat itself, and if so, to the same person, or are the reputations done to totally different people? Do you mean 'repetitions' rather than 'reputations'?

I'd suggest another paragraph mark before your last sentence, for the same reason as the last one. Gives people time to absorb what you've said.

I haven't really critiqued your actual points because I'm still thinking about them myself...all I've tried to do here is help you polish up the way you delivered the message. I hope I haven't overstepped the boundaries, and I also hope that some of this is useful. Cheers, it's an interesting piece. =)

Thanks, and if you wish to do the punctuation thingy, go ahead, i really wasn't intending to keep this anyways. I got bored and wrote it up..its a bunch of nonsense ramble, nothing more. I went on ahead and fixed everything up, but like i said earlier, i really dont think this writing is going anywhere...it will either get scrapped or deleted.

If that's your decision it's your decision...but don't delete it. You'd be amazed how valuable old pieces you thought were useless then can be in the now. I just found a poem I wrote about three months ago that I'd totally forgottten about...it's buggery on its own, but I can revise it into something that's got merit. If you really think this is buggery, at least do yourself the service of keeping it in waiting for a later you.

rofl makes since to me. its a perfect guide to get people to question their stance on this^^ See i believe there is fate, no mattre what path in life you chose, there going to be event you would encounter either way. Any time you fel deja voux, or a strange comfort in the situation. Fate isnt what you ate for dinner, or if you got sick, most the time, fate is ending up in that bar to meet that girl, or to save that guys life. heh i'll stop ey. Very good work in my oppinion, it questions alot, and makes people think.
