untitled – something about fate

Some call it karma While some call it fate Divine intervention - All terms that I hate We're not simply acting As a deity dictates Life is not just some ride That we cannot escape We're not stuck on a path From which we can't deviate Our lives are not set in stone The future [...]

Life often feels like little more Than a game of Russian Roulette Relief at every trigger pull Ending only in a hammer click Before you're once again reminded There's still a bullet loaded And each lucky escape Is one less empty chamber Between you And the final round   In response to the Word of [...]

Learning

There is so much I must still learn Things I need to know But no-one can teach me Because I cannot be taught I learn from experience Through sights and sounds Through action and emotion What is written in textbooks Will never be teachable to me I have to see it Hear it Do it [...]
