LEAVING FATE

LEAVING FATE

A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror
"

" whispers in the ear "

"






we are chosen

the softest revelation

whispers in the ear

a guided gesture

resides in stars

every fallen sparkle

a trail of wonder


blinded by choice

good and evil are a delusion

the embers burn bright on both sides

nobles bend and humble the saved

the willing serve a master

we all feed the flames

until a whisper

strikes never

 

the audible silence

calm divine madness

the next toss of a coin

tumbles in promise

as water pours

over clasped hands

holding a prayer


no whispers in the ear

no stars fallen trail

no wonder of a tale

the rear-view mirror

frames a life without fear

action without regret

leaving without fate

 


Terry D'Arcy-Ryan

"revelation", then "compromise" follows... then the daoist...until this: "and the dark wings of my brothers are a shadow cast across my face
as the fate I cannot escape". i'm lost, are we going back to the earlier revelation or charting our own course? #empowered#

Destined if you do, destined if you don't. Even when it doesn't seem like it. Illusion of choice by the user. The pics suggest to me surrender, a leap of trust into this suspected experience. Thank you for your words Sheer, they are always fun for me to fall into:)

The first thought that comes to mind is human nature and taking chances. That person jumping off the building is flipping his own coin; heads he wins, tales he loses.

To look back at the loses is a part of a past that can't be changed. Life is a crap-shoot in many things we do.

Liked this. :)
