Thinking back before this day
How it came to be this way
Did you master all of it?
Every single little bit?
Or were there times you questioned too
Did your parents purchase you,
Or settled for the sight of you?
Do you have siblings, that you like,
Or cousins hence you like to fight?
Did you change your own hair colour,
Thinking that you’d look much better?
How come your friends have it all
When you struggle & feel so small?
How is it that you failed at school
And never felt that really cool?
Or maybe you are quite successful
Was this something just inevitable?
Was it clear from that day one
You had your orders one by one?
Did you know what was in store?
Did you know something more?
Is there a way to determine
What will be…is for certain?
If I await & take no action
Will I have much satisfaction?
But if I chose to play a hand
Will I succeed on this land?
Life’s not fair, this is my fate
Predetermined & gravitate
& when I decide in reality
Did I change my #Destiny?

To think of your fate is to be deterministic.
You just accept things..
“If it was meant to be it will happen”
“It is what it is”
To think in terms of Destiny allows probability to exist;
It is not absolute and allows for change.
If you don’t like it..change it!
Destiny is more #positive!
