Do you believe in fate?
Do you ever think about fate?
What about coincidences?
Well, what about the chance of us growing up 30-45 minutes away from each other until you move down here when you’re 13,
And then about 10 years later, I move down here,
And then a year and a half later, we meet.
What are the chances of that happening?
Is it a coincidence or is it fate?
Is it predestined?
An already spun tapestry of our interconnected lives.
The thread of our souls already intertwined?
Or is the tapestry incomplete?
Slowly spinning more and more as the sun rises and sets,
And the thread of our souls may not look like they will meet
Until they eventually do.
In this tapestry we call life,
Our threads have already met.
But what are the chances we have so many similarities in our upbringing
For it not to be predestined and prespun?
I think about these things.
I know it’s silly, but
it gives me hope.
