Time VS Fate

Time VS Fate

A Poem by SparksLC
"

Sometimes you can't avoid the unavoidable things in life, for another hand controls what we cannot.

"

Static

Never-changing,

Forcibly locked into one’s own time.

A frozen hourglass sits by the wall,

Waiting and wondering when the sands of time will begin to move.

Lost, and alone.

What determination does this inanimate object have left?

A tree,

Forever growing and changing,

Yet it’s forced to bear an inevitable fate,

of being eternally tied to one single place in the world.

Such is the human act of devotion and loyalty

What is this loyalty?

Chains twirling effortlessly, trapping any who step within its path?

The ability to immensely place one’s trust within another familiar being?

Is it an obligation?

A need?

A want?

Is it indefinite?

Or temporary

When the sands of time begin to move, will loyalty and devotion have run its course?

What is the vow of human nature?

What is the truth of what cannot be attained by mankind?

In a constantly changing world,

who holds all the bearings?

Who controls time, and fate?

Do we throw ourselves into our own pits of fire?

In our never-changing world,

Who freezes the time we thrive to set in motion?

This is a fight between the seen and the unseen.

Forever waging an impossible war,

 which destiny holds all the possible outcomes to.

Death forging life,

Life forging death.

Round and round this cycle of frozen time and fate spin

Will it ever stop?

"death forging life, life forging death" well...that says it all, doesn't it? we create what we are and we are what we create. amazingly you have spelled out the answer without even touching upon it, because your questions are so relevant.
outstanding write!
