Amor Fati

by Peter Saint-Andre

Whatever might unfold for me
Is not spun out by scheming Fates;
Instead it's simple destiny,
A line of life that time creates.

It's natural that I love this line,
Despite its pains and hurried pace;
Because the steps I make are mine,
I take pride in their style and grace.

(cf. The Joyful Learning, ยง276)
