Which road in life shall we take?
As the three goddesses spin our fate.
They ensure that as mere mortals how we will live
To the laws of the universe that we can’t outlive.
Clotho she who spins the threads of life,
Lachesis she draws the lots that causes strife,
Atropos she chooses when our thread of life will end
They have set out how our lives will be condemned.
They personify what we believe to be fatalism.
It leaves us with little or no optimism,
For our lives are preordained and inevitable.
You see our destiny is no longer questionable
So just sit back and enjoy the flow
All our misfortunes help us grow
For our trials and tribulations help us to see
That, what is to be, will be.
