If only I could tell
The future very well;
Where these footsteps will lead,
What’s the fruit of this seed;
If I could understand
The complicated strand;
Beyond where the road bends,
Where the journey will end;
If only I could see
Beyond infinity;
What clothes this universe;
What follows the last verse;
If only I could know
If there’s a tomorrow;
Or every day’s the same,
With just a different name.
The stairs I do not see
Rest on those beneath me;
The next race I must run
Depends upon this one.
Tomorrow’s yesterday
Is already today;
My present fantasies
My future memories.
If I will know the fruit
Then the seed must take root;
And I will take the bend
If I must reach the end.

    This is BRILLIANT!

    1. Thanks @dottaraphels.
      Predestination? what’s that?

      1. Lol…completely my take Zaz…

        Predestination as in though My mind sorta works as pondered by your words, I could spend an eternity thinking,wondering, seeking….
        I have a theory on everything being because it’s been made to be so already. By whom ,what ?, that’s another subject.

        I can understand your ??? though, for the free thinkers and free choosers, I suppose my take seems off? All the same , my take.
        That shed a little light for you?Winks!
