Is it true, what people say? This is a world where everything has to balance and so there exist equal opposites. For every hello that is spoken, a farewell is bidden. For every smile that is given, somewhere a tear has fallen. For every couple that comes together with love, another relationship ends in heartbreak. For every step forward, circumstances force us back.
We seal our future with the decisions we have made in the past. Things end before they have even started. Life takes as much as it gives.
Of whose choice? Not of mine.
The delicate bud barely has a chance to flower before it was destroyed.
Of my choice. Yet not quite.
Regrets? Some. Disappointments? Yes. Resignation? Somehow.
But I don’t know what to do, who to believe. Anymore.
Our wills and fates do so contrary run
That our devices still are overthrown;
Our thoughts are ours, their ends none of our own.
