    Fate's Design

    It is not length of life
    by which we measure
    a man’s soul;
    worth comes not in age,
    but by the depth
    through which we
    choose to live it.
    Fallacy of heart
    may alter the mold,
    but only lack of faith
    can break it.
    The paths before us,
    choose wisely we must-
    or else the road may
    turn cold and lonely.
    And that which beacons
    along the paths ahead,
    may dim within
    the fog of uncertainty.
    Remember this rule,
    if no other-
    life is built upon
    the choices we make.
    Ascertain the decisions,
    and with conviction
    step into existence
    to design your fate.

    So true. I have made the leap upon the rocks more than once. The heart doesn't always tell the truth. We can only blame our mistakes on ourselves. I have learned with age to get a good nights sleep so my decisions now are made with open eyes.

    Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
