Fate wandered alone in a field of Regret.
Unsure of his fortune, aware of his Debts.
He had heard of a place where Dreams are a dream.
Where Honesty lives by a clear, crystal stream of
unconscious thoughts and moments of Pride.
Where Wisdom gives Life to the Hopes that have died.
The place where Confusion and Certainty meet.
Where the Music is true and the Memories sweet.
He took a wrong turn and soon lost his way
as he searched for the place where Happiness stays.
Soon Fear crossed his trail and Fate realized
that the place would evade him the more that he tried.
As he came to a forest overrun with Torment,
he saw in his Heart it was time to relent.
Then deep in the darkness, he saw a Will running free,
and he knew in that moment all the things that could be.
So he made his own path,
and he took his own time,
and he founded a place
that he simply called, “Mine”.
