Lines - Poem by Kylie Liu

Those who are unfortunate,
Shall have to learn to live a life of a thousand sorrows.
It is true; if you think that this is my story alone,
I shall tell you, I am not alone.?
So is it useless to take over responsibility?
Do I have to endure all the misfortune to make it less painful?
Maybe not.
Because the more Heaven dictates on me,
An unfortunate fate,
The more I do not believe in fate.
Because even if the lines on my palm are broken,
And even if the scar that separates them are permanent,
I shall use this palm to create my own path.
Because I believe that,
My fate is not,
Determined by the Heavens,
But by me,
And I.
