What You Make Of Your Life


however events do touch you
you do still come through the throng
to places that your heart long to go

but still after loss
only a frustrating wish remains
when destiny falls with fatality
and we do remain fragile and brittle,

as beings that sometimes do search and find
and at other times we are only blinded.
