Patti Smith Poem For Sam Shepard From The Creem Archives 1971

the murdered boy 
the murdered boy 
the murdered boy 

Oh I was bad 
didn't do what I should 
mama catch me with a lickin' 
and tell me to be good 
when I was bad twice times 
she pushed me in a hole 
and cut off all my fingers 
and laid them in a finger bowl 

My mother killed me

Karma, Free Will, and Destiny

The question of karma, destiny and free will has baffled the scholars and philosophers since the beginning of time and plays an important role in trying to explain the role in society and human behavior. This is a very complicated and difficult subject to deal with. However, I am trying to throw some light as I understand it myself.
 It is the most misunderstood and misinterpreted subject in the philosophy of life. However, the ancient sages were very clear in understanding this subject and have tried to elucidate us through their teachings.
The quest for knowledge, truth and happiness is as old as life itself and all the choices we make are aimed at attaining this happiness and avoiding unhappiness. Astrology seeks to guide one in this natural urge towards greater fulfillment by revealing one's past karma.
