Life is a chain of events, tied together;
linking what will become, to the past.
An illusion of choice, or uncertain future.
You may disrupt destiny, but it won’t last.
All actions connected, nothing is random;
each step decided; the process planned.
To adjust the present in a futile attempt,
to alter the result, is like shoveling sand.
* as a footnote, I’d like to point out that I don’t personally believe this, but I find the perspective interesting in those who do.
