Fate And Destiny - Poem by vern eaker

At birth our path is set
To alter it chances we get
Opportunities give us a chance
To circumvent our circumstance

Some can overcome diverse situations
Choosing their own path or destination
Others except things as they come along
Believing they must, not feeling strong

Many require assistance in life
Incapable of dealing with strife
Very few plan, a life on their own
Deciding it best to go it alone

Life’s confrontations seem unfair
Battling them by trial and error
Still never knowing if you win
Or destined through fate the same end
