The randomness of life

Frightens me


Where is the cosmic plan

Is there no control

Over our own lives

Dice thrown

Slot machine arms pulled

Fifty-two cards shuffled

It seems that patterns

Are more a crazy quilt

As prayers remain unanswered

But surely mathematical swirls

Adorning backs of nautilus shells

Or the two eyes on most animal life

Or planets orbiting stationary suns

Or cruciferous vegetable petals

Are part of a well-defined design

An inevitable scheme

And not a random dream?
