Poem Commentary

So buckle up right - It's a bumpy flight ...


People often think that ~
We get what we deserve.
That we're not satisfied,
Until our voice is heard.
~ ~ ~
Some say that it's karma ~
Biting us in the ass. 
Making us pay for crimes,
Committed in the past.
~ ~ ~
Some say it's predestined ~
Determined long ago.
By Destiny's DNA,
Imprinted in our souls.
~ ~ ~
Some say it's spiritual ~
Brought forth by inner faith.
Something we must suffer,
To pass thru the Pearly Gates.
~ ~ ~
I believe it's a test ~
How much can one endure?
Riding this cloud called Life,
Can any of us be sure?
~ ~ ~ 
No matter what we do ~
We really have no control.
So buckle up right  - it's a bumpy flight ..
And hold tight to your soul!!
~ ~ ~

Ken nice poem. Been awhile my road hasn't been a straightforward line. Very curvy an bumpy. But I seem to be still holding on to my life line. Thank god. For his mercy on my soul.

Well put old friend, wouldnt expect anything less!
