Death Defying Acts

There’s no place to make a sound
If nobody cares about your voice
We all need a way out
But dying is our only choice

We retreat into death defying acts
It’s all we have as everybody knows
The seeds have no place to go
Because love ends when the rooster crows

The stack of chips follow certain people
But only those who control their fate
Girls look for a skinny circus mirror
And smile at friends they secretly hate

We eat the stale bread of promise
And complain about our lot
Yet the blessings pile up in the corner
Unknown, forsaken and unsought

Hope vanishes in the mist
It's face shrouded in ambivalence
Its up to you now my God
Will my destiny be your deliverance?

Sometimes God can't control our decisions, We make our own decisions and we decide our fate. There's no divine purpose on earth that can help people stop trying to commit murders or suicide, that's people that do that.

Now I am a believer in God, but I do believe people can decide whether to make their own decisions, God can't make a person decide whether or not to kill anyone or do death defying acts for attention.

@Raevyn - Thank you for the thoughtful comment. I always hope I can reach someone; especially to the level of a response such as yours. I think I have a cynical point of view towards life ("there are many among us who think life is but a joke"). I also believe we have free will. I just wonder if the exercise of this free will is against God's will. I have no way of knowing. I don't feel his guidance. I am compelled to do certain things; maybe that is his presence. The problem is I don't have a plan. I just kind of go with what feels right given my circumstances and my obligations.

You have to do things as you see fit, no one can make decisions for you, they try and they fail. Only you are in charge of your ideas and actions
