Fate. It twines its narrow fingers around us, pulling our strings as if we were puppets and makes us dance as if we wanted to do it all. A mockery of free will and choice.
Destiny winds its song into our hearts and we wonder: Is there such a thing as God? Is our doom predestined? In all of this free will, how much is planned for us already?

Those that do not choose for themselves gain nothing. Those that wallow in the idea of fate, that decide that "Fate will choose for me", end up cold and alone, empty. They fear choice and in desperation turn to solitude. They lock themselves in the darkest cupboard of the endless maze that is their mind and they are lost forever.
Those that laugh at fate and destiny find their end just the same. They giggle at coincidence and hide behind unsure smiles, wondering if it really was meant to be.

How can we go through life not knowing? Can we ever live in this world with a solid, black-and-white view on things? Can greyshades never introduce themselves into our mindsets?

Sometimes I wonder. And I wonder if some great storyteller is writing all of our stories as we live, storing them in a great hall like the Books in Death's Hourglass room. Everything that we do recorded in those great dusty tomes, never looked at, all interlinked. All corresponding to one another.

Does Fate or Destiny Rule us? Or do we rule ourselves?

I got the feeling that you're in the same insanely thoughtful mode that I am. Or, were when you wrote this.

I've spent the past few days thinking about everything from what I think to what I don't and... I've gotten nowhere. All I've concluded is confirming my idea that anything is possible. Obviously not a very set in stone belief system.

So what I'm getting at is that I want to know the same answers, but I guess the only way we'll find out is if it's written that we will. Or, if we choose to. ... Which?

Good God I'm confused.

In conclusion [because that was an seemingly pointless comment], I don't know, and I want to know too.

So if you find out, don't let me be the last to know! [[song lyric. It just came to me. >_>]]

My Angel. We need to like, sit and talk all this out, because in-depth philosophical discussions amuse me whilst at the same time freaking me out bigtime.

As soon as I know, I'll give you a ring and we can skip off knowingly into the sunset. You know, if Fate has chosen that for our end...

*grins*

Love. x

Me too. So next time I'm up early enough, or late enough for that matter... We will.

Yay! I like rings and I'm a big fan of skipping knowingly, 'cause I've never done it and stuff.

Can we skip through something that's not grass, though? I'm allergic, see.

*giggles*

tons of love. <3
