Fate is a funny thing.
It is believed that your destiny is a thread,
Spun, measured, and cut by the three goddesses
That preside over humans;
Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos.
They decide who you are today
And who you will become tomorrow.
The Fates are believed to have started interfering
With the lives of man after the creation of Pandora.
Since then all the good and bad
That men experience in their lives
Is determined by the Fates at birth.
Ruthless and without pity or remorse
The Fates always punish wrongdoers,
Inflicting hardship and evil.
Once your fate is spun, and measured,
There is no escaping when Atropos cuts,
Your string of life.
As we live and breath
Our time has already been decided,
Not to be changed
By the things we do
What a tragedy.
To believe that everything
Has already been planned.
Can change it.
Not who we talk to.
Nor where we go.
Trapped to live the life
As decided by an outside force.
