If our free will leads us to our destiny
Is the will truly free?
Our decisions truly ours?
Do the tides feel our thoughts before they form?
Do we create our reality,
Or are the circumstances of our circumstances
Prescribed for us--
Limiting the scope of our "freedom"
To choose an alternate ending?
This is the proverbial vortex of the conundrum;
The universe prescribed--
That allows lovers to love
And hopers to hope.
