They are Destiny’s children.
We had no say in the matter.
Children of Destiny are called for at birth
To die, before their time
And move on to a better place.
Because they were not our children
Twenty of them did not belong to this Earth
They were not ours.
They were God’s, if you believe in God
Or they were Fate’s.
But they were not ours.
Sometimes, our lives are long
And we work hard for a death in peace
But sometimes, we are called on before our time.
Sometimes, we are Destiny’s children.
We live fast, and die young
Before our first breath is taken, we are already claimed by Destiny.
We are Destiny’s children.
Destiny is in our blood; she is our mother and our savior.
And we leave with her, because we are Destiny’s children.
Twenty, they were, claimed by Destiny
Killed by rage
And mourned by all.
Because they are Destiny’s children.
