What Is Your Sign?
Have you ever met any human being
Who does not know their sign of the zodiac?
We all pretend not to believe in astrology
Yet, we all know our astrological signs
What is your sign? We ask each other
Whenever many of us buy newspapers
The first thing we read is the horoscope section
Do the zodiac signs influence our destiny?
Are we puppets been manipulated by the stars?
Do the stars above determine our happiness?
Do our birthdates decide our fate on earth?
Then, how come twins born on the same day
Have different destinies and lifestyles?
Do you credit your success to your birthdate?
Or blame your failure on your astrological sign?
People born under the same zodiac sign
Are said to possess similar characteristics
It is also said that our zodiac sign determines
Our compatibility with other fellows
Whether this is true or not, in most cases
We still decide who is or will be our wife, partner
Husband, spouse, soul-mate or companion
If we end up making an erroneous decision
And our relationship end up in a divorce court
Shall we blame astrological incompatibility?
Or blame our shortsightedness and all the stars above
Many believe that astrology can compute probabilities
Therefore, nothing is carved in stone or infallible
All things been equal, it is worth looking into
Enjoy your life, good luck and happy destiny
