The Hand of Fate (poem)

We want to know what the future holds
so we can plan and take control

But it seems that we aren’t truly free
to be in charge of our destiny

So much of life is out of our hands
cannot be swayed by wants and demands

It’s astonishing that we bother all
when fate steps in and drops the ball

Our world falls apart in front of our eyes
and nothing we do can rationalise

Or fix the damage that has been done
Why me? Why you? Why anyone?
