Always waiting. Waiting for something you don’t know, something that won’t show until it’s gone. Taking a chance is a bit too much to ask when you’re young, still free. Feeling too young for something so powerful to exist, but can it, is it that hard to miss? It cannot possibly exist, it’s too much to handle, can love subsist?
“It’s a luscious mix of words and tricks
That let us bet when we know we should fold
On rocks i dreamt of where we’d stepped
And of the whole mess of roads we’re now on.”
- The Shins
Sometimes you know more is less
Put your weight against the door
Kick drum on the basement floor
Stranded in a fog of words
Loved him like a winter bird
On my head the water pours
Gulf stream through the open door
Fly away to what you want to make” —Feist
“There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, can circumvent or hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul… Even Death stands still, and waits an hour sometimes for such a will.” - Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Will is the strength, the power of the earth, the sun, and all that is life itself.
Although believing in fate is reassuring to some, making people feel that everything is planned for them and that it will all work out in the end, letting fate take control may lead to a downfall in life.
If we assume that all will end well, then why should we try? Why should we be determined and commit ourselves to our desires when we can just let fate bring us to our destiny?
Living for your destiny is like being a puppet, being completely controlled by your master, fate. When one has a single target to aim for in life, then they can put their efforts into that shot.
Those who have lived determined and single-minded will have a greater ability to face death. Even when one is on the verge of death, their will can lead them back to life. Those with the motivation to live will not live to die, but live the time they have to the fullest, and leave their spirit living on, even after death.
