Destiny

Destiny

Is it yes:

is it no:

which way will the pendulum go?

Backwards; forwards;

left or right?

Spinning round to show my plight.

Is it love:

is it fame

or untold riches for me to claim?

Turn a card;

toss the dice;

trust to fate or pay the price.

Read my palm;

scan the stars;

Venus is aligned with Mars.

Am I trapped

or am I free?

Just what is my destiny?

THat reminds me of a way to find the sex of your unborn baby which was popular years ago. Ring on a length of cotton over the "bump. If it spun M/F or back and forth M/F - cant remember which. Liked the verse.

And then, the string of the pendulum breaks!

I used to be attracted to the pendulum, but it is more wishful thinking and projection of these wishes into an uncertain future.

it may be fun, but careful not to follow on closely, because we are in hcarge of our destiny more that it is in charge.

I find it easier to be under the influence of God rather than a [iece of stone attacjed to a string.
