FATE FEEDBACK
(4/15/18)

we try to live
our lives
as best possible

attempting
to associate
our decisions
with the results
that they garner

but every action
seems attached
to an insistent
question mark

our words

our movements

subject
to interpretation
by those
about us

seldom reflecting
the least
of our intent

perception
more a factor
of personality
than fact

what we do
is skewed
by our view
of the world

twisted
again
by the opinions
of others

our outcomes
pinned
to a mood
crap shoot

our futures
determined
by emotions
unseen

to the point
where we wonder
if any actions
should be taken
at all

we turn
off the lights
at night

hoping
for dreams
better
received
