Everything Happens For A Reason - Poem by Shelby Barker
That's when he left me,
The day I spoke of life's weight
And called it certain destiny
Our actions and circumstances have all been foreseen
I said, though free will this does not abate;
that's when he left me
I said with fate we couldn't hope to intervene
(because against loss we've formed armored plate
And called it certain destiny) .
'Never pondered is the appropriate word ‘obscene'
When the truth of real experience you desecrate! ' -
That's when he left me.
Oh, has not everyone had to flee
The cause of any altered mental state
And called it certain destiny?
'Reasons that bring out faith are weak,
belonging to an ignorance which you create.'
That's when he left me
And called it 'certain destiny.'
