Life Is Not Random (First Version) - Poem by L C Vieira

Life is not random
When each fall
Lifts us higher
Than ourselves
Words unspoken
From beyond
The chance
Some greater plan
That I am more
Than what I know
And all is more
Than I know now


Poet's Notes about The Poem

On August 4,2011, after reading Elizabeth Musser's inspiring book: 'Words Unspoken' I wrote this short poem - and sent it to her, too. Then, while away in the forest, I was trying to remember the words - left on a scrap of paper at my home. I couldn't think beyond the first two lines, so I wrote a newer, longer version. This is the original, short one - from that little scrap of paper!
