Astrological Fatalism

Look up...

see the oldest clock in the world...

it fascinates everyone who watches the dance...

spinning bodies in perfect sync...

a celestial romance.


All around you see people...

gaging their acts...

waiting upon its gentle turns...

thinking it all means something...

enough to negate their desires to the contrary...

add stars, subtract their maker...

that's the way of the watchers...

not understanding nothing is given till the end.


if you want something, go after it...

the stars to the devil...

it is all about the willingness for greatness...

harmony within.


So what if the stars say he's a dunce and your a twit?

in life both have minds...

hearts to make something of life...

perhaps you can find new starts in eyes...

enough spark to try anyway.


Then write your own chart tangled in satin...

laughing at the lark that might have kept you apart...

nothing is perfect...

nothing is sure...

if you want love, then love...

but to keep it you endure.


That's all that is asked...

if you have the heart...

hold on to each other...

stars to the side.

Interesting line about accepting stars while rejecting their Maker; as if the stars alone can guide us to true fulfillment.

Very well done, thank you.
