Search for meaning

What role does chance play in our life?
Things that happen and things that we do,
Are we in control or do we just play it out..
Are things preordained by fate,a grand plan
is there?,with each one of us playing a part
Are we the puppet or the puppet master?

What I pray, do tell!, of free will then ?
two roads in front of me, what do i take?
wherefore doth my destiny lie?
Choose do I or is the choice already made?
Why this dilemma am I faced by..
wherein both action and inaction lead me awry!

what am I? Why am I? How am I ? Who am I?
looking inside of me to find the answers
gets me more lost than I was ever before!
Duty, honour, responsibility,
karma, Dharma, Adharma
words meant to throw light but darken..
and confound rather than explicate.

  1. To choose or already chosen depends on what makes you feel better. Such questions are thrown open because you really want to do something which u thing u cant or shouldnt do. ur heart desires something whereas ur brain reasons it away. hence this confusion. hence dont think too much about it. just go ahead and do what u want to do rather than worrying abt what u ought to do.. ;)
