Holds with time 
We’d look back, 
At images callow
Too soon outlines,
Journey to follow 
Age wouldst find,
Ye hoped mellow
Composed in lines, 
That shan’t forget
Life as man mined,
Fates’ ensuing place 
Hence end of the line, 
Fixed carved on a face
Bound predictably to life!

  1. In a world that believes planning can eliminate uncertainty, we often underestimate the influence of fate in our lates. Another most excellent poem that prompts reflection.
