Aiming for Murky Horizons

Judging on what we know today,
we set our goals for tomorrow,
next week, the end of our lives.
Yet, without certainty about
things to come, people to meet,
setbacks to deal with,
our plans are mere gambles
on the roulette wheel of life.
Still, we desperately cling to the brittle,
imagined assurances
of controlling distant destinies.
Instead of trying to deal with
the reality of indiscriminate chance.
