Destiny

I once wrote about Destiny and how it is in OUR hands- we choose to build those damn bridges and we choose to cross them too. And I still believe in that.
But what happens when despite all your efforts, you never quite meet at the bridge at the same time?
Or what happens if you're on parallel bridges, so close but your paths can never intersect, you can never meet.
What do you do when Fate decides to be funny, and makes two people build and cross two different bridges at the same time, so once again you're at opposite ends?
And what happens when despite your best efforts, right in front of your eyes, those bridges burn?
Why is it so difficult sometimes, to have something as simple as a conversation? Why is there always an interruption, an interference or simply just conflicting schedules? And considering how life gets busier as you grow older, what with all the responsibilities, how do you get Destiny to cooperate?
Because at the end of the day, you have to agree that some things are simply not in your hands.
You could build that bridge, cross it, and march up to that persons house- but they could just be on a plane to the other side of the world. You could be too late.
And more than anything else, you can plan your perfect moment and your ideal life and go about trying to make it happen, but you can't control what someone says to you, or how they come around and change your world, and maybe your beliefs.
You simply can't.
So Destiny, I've realized, is an annoying pain. Because it's about time really.
