Pandora's Key

Yes, I have tricks in my pocket, I have things up my sleeve. But I am the opposite of a stage magician. He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth. I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion.” ― Tennessee Williams

In Control

There are things which are in our control and then there are so many which are not. I believe the list of latter will be a lot longer then the former one, because that's how we all feel.. trapped, controlled like some lifeless puppets of some show. But, in spite of all that, we all have a healthy appetite for having CONTROL in our lives. Since the men (and women) have stepped up in the ladder of evolution 'control' over almost everything has been the bone of contention and, with no exceptions, everyone wants to taste it. If not absolute then even a small bite of it works too. 

Desire to have control over decisions, resources, people around you (specially the related ones), ideas (and everything else a human mind is capable of conceiving of) is the reason of what we are today and what we are capable of doing. Civilizations been flourished, great Kings walked this very earth on which you and I are standing, we have public administration, we live in a society, we have constitution, we negotiate, we trade, we follow rules, we have our own codes n procedures...  WHY ?? Because someone, somewhere had this idea of  having some CONTROL.

What's the world's greatest lie?... It's this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate.
~Paulo Coelho

Why do we always crave for having Control.. or are we always controlled by others.. Does someone else holds the script of your actions or is it altogether a different tale ??

In control, 
of the things you do,
or you will.
Is someone else holding the pen ?
when you indite,
or it's you, who is guiding you.

Variables and attributes
grants, adjustments or rebukes 
all that's happening around..
is a part of Grand Design 
or it's just you. 
Who decides what's redundant 
what's not ?
roam around, fly free
or sit in a place and rot. 

Distracting puzzling ideas
to confuse,
or the building blocks 
of the road you choose.
Strings are pulled up 
or pushed down
difference, hardly counts.

All the path that leads here 
has been crafted by you 
nothing's a chance 
it's all what you muse 
There are times when you feel 
satisfied and content,
sometimes, you just pretend. 

Napolean rightly says- You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your life what you want it to be. All you need is 'CONTROL'.
