My Kingdom For A Crystal Ball

crystal ball-dec 2 2015-morguefile

I wondered why I left that day,
Worried about right and wrong,
Plagued for years to come
By dreams,
Questions,
Doubts.

Troubled by potential consequences,
Concerned with possible damage,
The hurt,
And pain.

All to no avail.

Choices made by all,
Action taken by all,
Results undreamt of,
Unplanned for,
Unheard of,
Unexpected.

Not one of us has control,
No-one knows the outcome
Of choices made.

What seems best
At the time
Is for that time.

As time moves,
Thoughts differ,
People change,
Needs change,
‘Best’ changes.

Crystal balls are in short supply…

  1. Imagine if crystal balls were more forthcoming, think of the clashes when everyone wants/gets the same thing. However, I do feel you, decisions made are sometimes thought of as future but we do not know the future, so the decisions may rightly be for now. hmmm. Interesting
