Life is but a book of songs

Life is but a book of songs

A Poem by Gee
"

Another oldie dusted off....

"
Our lives are but a book of songs
the fates they are our voice,
serenading us into false belief
that our destiny is our choice.

I feel less responsible for my state after reading this thoughtful poem. All is not my will and I did not chose some of the things that came my way. I love this brief & beautiful write.

Thank you..
Gee - you may not know this about me but I am a swinger ! Yep ...a swinger.
I swing between thinking that I am master of my own fate then Life smacks the back of my bare legs - making me cry and reminding me that fate is in charge. So what to do?
I do like the idea that the fates are having fun at our expense though - it kind of makes me feel less bad about calling them those names I use sometimes.
I like this succinct but heartfelt piece.

You're a cheeky wee monkey my little green clad friend. Cheers mate
And a rather good oldie it is. I can emphasise with the idea that we are fooled into thinking that our destiny is our choice. One sometimes wonders how free our free-will is! I enjoyed this little poem. I can now get on with the chores on remote control!

Ain't that what Sunday's are for....thank you, have a good day
not so simple.....we do think we are masters of our own fate...but it may true that we are all just destiny's children...

many things that happen from birth to our death are out of our control no one gets out of here alive and no one lives in a perpetual disneyland

Thank you for reading
Far from simple as it gets one to think. Life as a book of songs but which to choose, love, punk, heavy metal, jazz? A mix? But indeed we can choose some part of the path but fate often us the road dug up and sends us one or two diversions!
