at least for me Grace does not supersede Karma
and Will is not stronger than Destiny
for whatever reason I cannot know in this skin
the One has forbade me even amendment
and all for which I strive is snatched from me
just as I'm about to achieve it
or given to me and assured of coming
to little or nothing
let the Positive Thinkers bray all they wish
they don't know how blessed they are
and for those of us not so fortunately disposed
we make our atonements as we go forward
not trying to undo sins we're already paying for
but at least a fighting chance next time we walk in flesh...
