Will Or Chance? - Poem by Donald L. Beegle

Is one's will able to create opportunity?
Can any person be so smart,
So taught and so in control to make their destiny?
A wonderful prospect but can it be true? I think not. Rather, opportunity is more a random chance with
no one ever in complete control.
A chance, an opportunity passes
by us all and only some are
at the right place to know how
or may be when to flag it down. How often is a person's career
far removed from their training?
The folly of youth, may it not
be any more than a rude comparison
with the experience of age?
And how can either be sure
which is right until youth becomes aged?
